This publication is a guide for institutions of higher education as they work with their federally supported State Postsecondary Review Entity (SPRE) to establish 15 standards for review. SPREs are established by state governments at the direction of the federal 1992 Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. They conduct and coordinate review of institutions of higher education referred to them by the United States Secretary of Education. They use criteria established in the 1992 Higher Education Act. SPREs are required to consult with institutions in their state before adopting review standards. Hence the necessity for higher education institutions to understand and prepare for the standards treated in this publication. An opening section of this guide describes the 1992 Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, the publication's legal limitations, and general advice on developing standards and working with local SPREs. The bulk of the publication describes the statutory standards one by one, and for each offers the review standard, examples of documentation, and explanations o terms, comments and considerations. Also included are a listing of designated state postsecondary review entities, institutional integrity review project college and university participants and drafters, staff participants, and the text of Section 494 of the Higher Education Act Amendments, 1992.
