10 Once you have it, then what?? No one wants to lose it Use to build in a discipline around key areas of: Strategic planning Assurance of learning Faculty qualifications

11 Strategic Planning Initiate a new planning process every three years or so Large, inclusive group Update annually Track progress annually Maintenance Reports were a good tool for that Institute something similar

12 Assurance of Learning Have a plan that lays out what will be done each year Track that on an annual basis Report back to the faculty on an annual basis In the US, regional accrediting bodies are also expecting this

13 Faculty Qualifications Track AQ/PQ and Participating/Supporting coverage for each academic session, including simulations on planned schedules Report results to faculty and Chief Academic Officer Leverage to ensure sufficient faculty resources No Chief Academic Officer wants Continuing Review or accreditation lost on his/her watch

14 Faculty Qualifications Manage the AQ to the 50% undergrad / 70%(?) grad level AQ/PQ Definition Get faculty to work together on scholarship Part-time (adjunct) faculty can be participating with appropriate activities supporting the school outside of teaching Participating/Supporting Definition

15 Promote Your Accreditation Place seal on all publications and materials. Make it clear on your website. AACSB wants you to, and its good for you, particularly outside of the US where it is less common. AACSB accreditation brings immediate credibility with global partners, certainly those in the US.

16 Keep Your Finger on the AACSB Pulse Need to stay current with what is happening at AACSB. Someone needs to attend a regional, annual, or deans meeting each year. Dont go 3-4 years not worrying about AACSB. Send faculty and other administrators to occasional meetings so they learn for themselves – AACSB Succession Planning
