Academic Certification

During the University’s recent Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) re-accreditation, a concern emerged about the University’s tracking of “substantive changes” to academic programs.  In order to address this deficiency, a workgroup was formed in August 2007, to review University, State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV), and SACS policies and procedures for the creation, alteration, and/or approval of academic programs and organizations.  As a result of this comprehensive review, an internal database was developed to assist with the management of the various components of programmatic changes from initiation to completion.  The database is currently in use.
