ACE Board Resolution: Toward Valuable and Effective Measures of Accountability

April 15, 2014

Adopted by the ACE Executive Committee, acting for the Board of Directors, in April 2014. The resolution states that given the rich diversity in the missions of institutions in American higher education, no single accountability system will work equally well for all our colleges and universities. The value of multiple state, institutional and association efforts is that accountability systems are designed to address the needs of particular types of institutions.

The ACE Board of Directors supports the examination of these and other accountability measures and the adoption of those that are best aligned with individual institutions.​​​​​​
