Purpose of WSCUC Accreditation
Accreditation is one way that universities demonstrate and affirm institutional commitment to high-quality education and contribution to the public good. Accreditation is a voluntary, nongovernmental process of peer review. The accrediting process, which consists of the self-study and institutional review, examines the university as a whole, the sum of its parts. It requires the institutional affirmation of WSCUC Core Commitments (PDF) demonstrated through the achievements of Standards and Criteria for Review (PDF). WSCUC website provides additional information about the purposes of accreditation.
