Capacity and Preparatory Review

The second step in the reaccreditation process is the Capacity and Preparatory Review which includes an evaluation of the university’s capacity and infrastructure to support student learning and cultivate a community of scholars as well as its approach to student learning assessment and academic program review. The Capacity and Preparatory Review also presents student data, disaggregated by student type and program.
