Associations Provide Comments to ED on NACIQI Draft Recommendations

December 02, 2011

 

​As part of its review of the nation's higher education accreditation system, the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) last October issued a draft discussion paper outlining 30 potential options for reforming the system.

ACE and a group of higher education associations submitted comments Nov. 22 on the draft, providing a series of principles for NACIQI to take into account in making final recommendations to Secretary Arne Duncan. These include the principles that the central focus of accreditation must remain the specific mission of the institution and that the federal government should not play a role in the assessment of student learning outcomes.

The paper, based on two public hearings, written comments and committee deliberations over the past year, will help inform the committee's formal response to the secretary at the end of this year.
