American Accreditation: Why Do It?
Prince, Deborah
Higher Learning Research Communications, v2 n3 p45-51 Sep 2012
A review of the history and purpose of accreditation followed by a brief case study of how a small specialist institution outside of the USA went through the process of becoming accredited. The changes needed inside the curriculum and inside the organization in order to make this significant organizational development are reviewed and discussed. The paper concludes with some discussion as to why a non-US based institution might decide to become accredited by an outside agency.
