Coming after U.: Why Colleges Should Fear the Accrediting Cartel.
Dillon, Thomas E.
Policy Review, n72 p39-42 Spr 1995
Examines how the college accreditation process can allow a centralized body of bureaucrats to impose a political agenda through their control of funding. The author provides the example of Aquinas College (Michigan) to show how this process can threaten educational quality by forcing changes in the curriculum and administrative practices to satisfy political goals.
