The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) Board of Directors reviewed the recommendation of the CHEA Committee on Recognition at its meeting, September 20-21, 2010, regarding the eligibility application submitted by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The board of directors determined that ACBSP is eligible to undertake a recognition review.
ACBSP will complete a self-evaluation providing evidence that it meets the CHEA recognition standards by March 1, 2011. CHEA requires an observation visit to a decision-making meeting of the accrediting organization to observe decision-making activities as these relate to CHEA eligibility and recognition standards. This observation visit will take place at the April 2011 Board of Commissioners meeting. The CHEA Committee on Recognition will review the self-evaluation, the report of the observation visit and any third party requests for comment and make a recommendation to the CHEA Board of Directors in June 2011.
The CHEA Board of Directors will make the final determination of recognition status in September 2011.
