Higher Education: Waking up to the Importance of Accreditation-- Ramifications of Proposed 2005 Extension of the Higher Education Act
Wergin, Jon F.
Change, v37 n3 p35 May-Jun 2005
Just a few years ago, almost no one saw accreditation as a major force for change in higher education. It was generally regarded as something of an anachronism, a ritual institutions had to go through periodically just to stay legit. But accreditation is back. Anyone who doesn't think so should try Googling "accreditation": even with qualifying phrases like "student learning" or "accountability," the curious reader would have to plow through nearly 200,000 Web sites.
