Florida International University (FIU) established a committee structure to oversee the university’s preparations for reaffirmation of accreditation.
The FIU SACSCOC Leadership Team oversees the reaffirmation process by providing leadership and resources to the team members preparing the reaffirmation documents and by ensuring the university is in compliance with SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation. The Leadership Team will give final approval of two key documents to be submitted to the SACSCOC:
- Compliance Certification Report
- Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
FIU Compliance Audit Team
FIU established a Compliance Audit Team to draft the Compliance Certification Report, which demonstrates how FIU complies with the SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation. Members are grouped into writing teams by content area to allow for a more efficient and comprehensive review of policies, procedures, and data to determine compliance and identify potential areas of concern that should be addressed during this self-study process.
FIU Office of Analysis and Information Management (AIM)
The Office of Analysis and Information Management (AIM) works in concert with the Leadership Team and the Compliance Audit Team to facilitate the preparation of the Compliance Certification Report. FIU’s SACSCOC Liaison and the Director of Accreditation review the work of the Compliance Audit Team members responsible for drafting sections of the Compliance Certification Report and offer recommendations to the Leadership Team regarding needed changes and improvements in FIU policies and procedures.
