Site Team Review: Petition for Degree-Granting Authority by National Defense University, School for Information Resources Management (iCollege)
US Department of Education
On November 3, 2010, a site team from the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) and the U.S. Department of Education conducted a visit to National Defense University's (University) School for Information Resources Management (IRMC or iCollege) at Ft. McNair in Washington, DC. The purpose of the visit was to verify the contents of the University's application for the authority to grant a Master of Science degree in Government Information Leadership (GIL) that the IRMC has developed in response to the Presidential Executive Order 13434 dated May 17, 2007, for National Security Professional Development of current and future Chief Information Officers (CIO) in national security positions in the Executive Departments and Agencies within the Federal Government. After meeting with administrators, faculty and students, and reviewing additional materials on-site, the site team is satisfied that the proposed graduate degree program meets the requirements of the "Federal Policy Governing the Granting of Academic Degrees by Federal Agencies and Institutions." Based on the extremely high quality of the program, the site team unanimously recommends that the Committee recommend to the Secretary that he recommend that the University be granted degree-granting authority, as requested.
