Accreditation is the subject of the next higher education reauthorization hearing scheduled for Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at 10:00 AM before the Senate Committee on Health Education Labor and Pensions.  

Earlier in the year, the committee released a white paper titled “Higher Education Accreditation: Concepts and Proposals.”   The paper serves as a means to enlist feedback from the public on a number of potential options for reforming accreditation in a Higher Education Act reauthorization bill.
