TCU is preparing to host visitors from several universities on campus in March 2013 as part of the reaffirmation of accreditation process. Through this process, institutions voluntarily conduct self-evaluations and then allow themselves to be reviewed by their peers to assess institutional effectiveness. The review, which occurs every 10 years, focuses on how well the school fulfills its mission, its success in complying with quality standards, and its ongoing efforts toward continuous improvement of educational programs, services and quality of student learning. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools – Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC) is the accrediting body for TCU and other institutions within Texas, the southern United States and Latin America. The University is already in the process of completing the required Compliance Certification and is gearing up to develop a Quality Enhancement Plan. More information on TCU’s work in this area is available on the TCU website.
