SACS On-Site Review
The On-Site Review – October 18 – 20, 2011
Following review by the Off-Site Peer Review Committee, the On-Site Peer Review Committee will conduct a focused evaluation at Bridgewater College on October 18-20, 2011, to finalize issues of compliance with the Core Requirements, Comprehensive Standards, and Federal Requirements. The On-Site Committee may also discuss the issues addressed in the QEP, and evaluate the acceptability of the QEP.
During the three day visit the On-Site Peer Review Committee will evaluate data, conduct interviews on campus, and fully examine the QEP. The committee provides written advice to Bridgewater College, develops a consensus of its findings, and completes a draft report. On the third day the committee presents an oral report to the President and invited Bridgewater College officials.
The departure of the On-Site Peer Review Committee does not indicate that the Reaffirmation for Accreditation has ended. At the conclusion of the visit, the On-Site Peer Review Committee will finalize the Report of the Reaffirmation Committee. This written report of findings noting any areas of non-compliance, including the acceptability of the QEP, will be forwarded to the Commission on Colleges for review and action on reaffirmation. The report will be reviewed by one of the standing committees of the Commission, and a recommendation regarding reaffirmation of accreditation will be forward to the Executive Council. The Executive Council recommends action to the full Commission, who makes the final decision. The full Commission meets twice a year.
