ASU faces possibility of probation after 'monitoring'
Rallo: No fear of losing accreditation from SACS
The university president announced Wednesday at the faculty senate meeting that if ASU is put on probation next year, it will "not survive."
ASU is now on nonpublic monitoring, Rallo said. Since Southern Association of Colleges and Schools placed ASU in that phase, it had two years to get out of it. Otherwise, it will move into probation.
SACS wrote up ASU in 2002 for not having learning outcomes, President Joseph C. Rallo said.
"They gave us years to fix that, and we did nothing," Rallo said.
Seventeen to 22 percent of ASU departments did not do what they should have, he said.
"That's not a place we want to be," he said.
The administration applied Wednesday to keep ASU's accreditation. The submitted documentations were based on the Quality Enhancement Plan.
"Next year, if we go on probation, this university will not survive," said Rallo, who is on the SACS committee. "I have no fear of not being reaccredited."
According to the SACS website, institutions provide two documents as part of the reaffirmation process: the Compliance Certification and the QEP.
The Compliance Certification, which should be submitted about 15 months before reaffirmation, is a document that demonstrates the level of compliance with core requirements, comprehensive standards and federal requirements.
The QEP, which should be submitted four to six weeks before an on-site review, should identify key issues, focus on learning outcomes and/or the learning environment, demonstrate a capability for QEP follow-up, and identify goals and a plan for achievement.
The Off-Site Reaffirmation Committee will review the institution and prepare a report for the On-Site Reaffirmation Committee.
After the On-Site Committee evaluates the campus, it will forward its report of the institution's areas of compliance and non-compliance to the Commission's Board of Trustees.
The board reviews the reports and the institution's response to the reports. The committee then forwards a recommendation to the Executive Council.
The Executive Council makes a recommendation to the full Board of Trustees, which makes the final decision on reaffirmation.
