After four months of revisions based on feedback from the campus community, Ball State's final draft self-study report for institutional accreditation is available online.
Broad participation by faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the community is essential to the university's efforts to secure continuing accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools for another 10 years. Ball State has been accredited since 1925 and received its most recent 10-year accreditation in 2004.
Institutional accreditation is a voluntary initiative that includes a comprehensive, critical evaluation of the university’s mission, goals, programs, and resources. The two-year process culminates in a peer review team visit to our campus in October 2013.
Accreditation assures students and the public that a college or university meets quality standards set by an independent, nongovernmental organization committed to enhancing higher education. It also allows the institution to conduct a critical self-assessment driven by five key criteria as a means to ensure accountability and plan for improvement.
