Accreditation Review Committee (ARC) Application Form
The ARC is responsible for the review of midwifery institution and program application reviews. The ARC volunteer is responsible for the detailed review of the applicant’s Self-Evaluation Report (SER) and related documentation. This review generally takes six to eight hours to complete. ARC members then convene via conference call to share their findings and prepare recommendations.
These calls can take as long as ten hours (over a series of meetings). The ARC also conducts a two or three day site visit to verify the information provided in the SER. Travel and lodging expenses related to site visits are paid by MEAC. The ARC then sends a report of their findings to the MEAC Board of Directors, which makes all final decisions regarding accreditation.
ARC members must adhere to the ethics policy of MEAC, which includes revealing any potential conflicts of interest and maintaining confidentiality.
Participating in the accreditation process requires a commitment of time as well as objectivity, accuracy, and attention to detail. When invited to join our pool of volunteers, you will receive training in the application of MEAC Standards for Accreditation and the accreditation process.
