Institutional Advisory Committee Meetings

(November 9, 2020; *UPDATED January 27, 2021)

 

*NOTE: This accommodation has been extended throughout the 2021 calendar year.

The Council recently approved a temporary accommodation for institutions hosting institutional advisory committee meetings required in Standard 1 – Institutional Mission of the Handbook of Accreditation.

Criterion 8 of Standard 1 states that institutional advisory committee meetings must have at least 2 of the three required external members physically present. The Council has approved a temporary accommodation for this criterion so that institutions may hold their advisory committee meetings in virtual format only with no members required to be physically present.

This accommodation applies to all meetings held for the remainder of the 2020 calendar year.
