The Importance of Regional Accreditation

Higher education accreditation has been in the news for the past couple of years. It has many advocates, supporters, and promoters, but it also has its detractors. Some of the criticisms are not new. They come from different constituents, including government and some from inside higher education. Some of the concerns include the cost of the process and the ability of peers to make tough decisions. For example, ACICS, a national accreditor, is currently under the fire for its alleged inability to act as a sufficient assessor of college quality.
