Click to view the full article (PDF) This monograph by Dr. Leroy Davis, Sr., a distinguished educator and former HBCU president, is written for the 77 HBCUs subject to oversight by the Southern Association of Colleges and Universities (SACS), a regional accrediting body designated by the US Department of Education to manage accreditation processes.

Every faculty and staff member needs to understand what accreditation processes seek to achieve, benchmarks of best practice, and the philosophy of planning and the commitment to congtinuous improvement lying at the core of accreditation standards. HBCU faculty and staff are encouraged to embrace their roles in relation to accreditation and better understand SACS' requirements and points of emphasis.

This report is part of a series from SEF's Center to Serve Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
