Questions for the ACRL/NEC Program about the new 2016 Standards for Accreditation

ACRL/New England Chapter's Leadership Development Committee is gathering questions in preparation for our April 4, 2016 program, "Accreditation, Assessment and Advocacy: What Every Librarian Needs To Know."

Your questions will be presented, in advance of our program date, to Dr. Brittingham, president of the Commission on Institutions of Higher Learning/New England and to our panelists. We will share summaries of the responses on the ACRL/New England Chapter website shortly after the program.

Dr. Barbara Brittingham, president of NEASC-CIHE, presents an overview of changes in the accreditation process and on how libraries may respond.

Panelists will include:
- Dean Ruth Sullivan of CCRI offering the perspective of an academic officer;
- Dr. Laura Saunders, faculty member at the Simmons GSLIS, and an expert on libraries and accreditation;
- Alan Carberry of Champlain College who will describe a successful accreditation review highlighted by his institution’s progress in information literacy assessment

Dr. Tom Abbott, formerly dean of the libraries at University of Maine, will facilitate our afternoon session.

Please join in this important discussion by sharing your questions.
