Once you have it, then what??
  • No one wants to lose it
  • Use to build in a discipline around key areas of
  • Strategic planning
  • Assurance of learning
  • Faculty qualifications

Strategic Planning
  • Initiate a new planning process every three years
    or so
  • Large, inclusive group
  • Update annually
  • Track progress annually
  • Maintenance Reports were a good tool for that
  • Institute something similar

Assurance of Learning
  • Have a plan that lays out what will be done each
  • Track that on an annual basis
  • Report back to the faculty on an annual basis
  • In the US, regional accrediting bodies are also
    expecting this

Faculty Qualifications
  • Track AQ/PQ and Participating/Supporting coverage
    for each academic session, including simulations
    on planned schedules
  • Report results to faculty and Chief Academic
  • Leverage to ensure sufficient faculty resources
  • No Chief Academic Officer wants Continuing Review
    or accreditation lost on his/her watch

Faculty Qualifications
  • Manage the AQ to the 50 undergrad / 70(?) grad
  • AQ/PQ Definition
  • Get faculty to work together on scholarship
  • Part-time (adjunct) faculty can be
    participating with appropriate activities
    supporting the school outside of teaching
  • Participating/Supporting Definition

Promote Your Accreditation
  • Place seal on all publications and materials.
  • Make it clear on your website.
  • AACSB wants you to, and its good for you,
    particularly outside of the US where it is less
  • AACSB accreditation brings immediate credibility
    with global partners, certainly those in the US.

Keep Your Finger on the AACSB Pulse
  • Need to stay current with what is happening at
  • Someone needs to attend a regional, annual, or
    deans meeting each year.
  • Dont go 3-4 years not worrying about AACSB.
  • Send faculty and other administrators to
    occasional meetings so they learn for themselves
