Staff Report to the Senior Department Official on Recognition Compliance Issues. Recommendation Page: American Academy for Liberal Education
US Department of Education
The American Academy for Liberal Education (AALE) was founded in 1992 for "the purpose of supporting and recognizing excellence in undergraduate liberal arts teaching and learning through accreditation." AALE's current scope of recognition is for the accreditation and pre-accreditation (Candidacy for Accreditation) of institutions of higher education throughout the United States that offer liberal arts degrees at the baccalaureate level or a documented equivalency. The agency requested to withdraw from recognition of its programs on October 28, 2010, after it submitted its response to the draft staff analysis to the Department. Effective November 3, 2010, the Department no longer recognizes AALE's programmatic accreditation. This paper presents the recommendations of the staff of the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) concerning AALE's petition for continued recognition.
