A "Spreadsheet Approach" for Monitoring Faculty Intellectual Contributions

Journal of Case Studies in Accreditation and Assessment, v3 Feb 2014
Sufficiency of faculty intellectual contributions (IC's) is a critical aspect in preparing for the initial AACSB International accreditation or reaffirmation of a business program. School administrators are confronted with the task of making sure business faculty achieve adequate intellectual contributions. To have a successful Peer Review Team (PRT) visit, it is critical that individual faculty members be monitored and tracked to ensure they achieve sufficient IC's for Academically Qualified or Professionally Qualified (AQ/PQ) status. This paper offers a systematic process for: (1) schools going up for initial AACSB accreditation; and (2) schools preparing for reaffirmation, that is broken down into three components. The three components include: (1) categorizing IC's into "A, B, C groups" to be used in determining AQ/PQ status, (2) the use of "faculty profiles" for documenting faculty IC's and, (3) providing a "spreadsheet approach" for monitoring faculty intellectual contributions. The result is a systematic approach with three tools to help achieve and maintain faculty AQ or PQ status with respect to IC's. This "spreadsheet approach" simplifies the process of monitoring and tracking faculty progress with respect to IC's thru the critical five year review period.
