Accreditation Consulting

Accreditation preparation consulting allows Quality Measures to work closely with the accreditation liaison (or contact person) within the college, university, or school to identify best practices, as well as feasible and effective strategies that will help meet accreditation standards. This also includes developing a continuous improvement plan, strengthening the process, identifying communication and reporting strategies, and identifying the appropriate support necessary for success. Consulting for, but not limited to, regional accrediting agencies such as SACSCOC (Southern Association of Colleges & Schools—Commission on Colleges) and NCA-HLC (North Central Association—Higher Learning Commission), and discipline specific accrediting agencies such as NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education), CACREP (Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs), ABET (Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology), and ACS (American Chemical Society).

Continuous Improvement

Continuous improvement is an inclusive, systematic, and cyclical process that helps institutions and organizations identify ways to improve what they do, as well as, demonstrate accountability to stakeholders and constituency groups. Although there are many models of the continuous improvement process, they all have four basic components: Plan, Implement, Assess, and Respond. Ultimately, continuous improvement allows the organization to self-evaluate its processes in various areas such as communication effectiveness, reporting strategies, recruitment and retention, success, and growth opportunities.
