REACH Revisions (For accreditation visits occurring fall 2019 or later).
The Office of Academic Services has updated the REACH Indicators and Rubrics. We collected input and feedback throughout the spring from regional staff, accreditation commissions, chairs, and teams. The final version was approved by the ACSI Commission on Accreditation and the ACSI Board in July.
There were no changes in the standards. Most differences will be evident in wording changes to indicators and rubrics. The new version will be available for schools working on their self-studies fall of 2018 and they will come into effect fall of 2019. Teams and chairs can access the revised Standards Manual and Rubrics Manual here: REACH Revisions. (The remainder of the team visit forms will see minimal, if any, changes.)
