In America, regional accreditation is a cornerstone of higher education and ensures that students receive a quality education from academic institutions that pursue excellence in every facet of their educational experience. Freed-Hardeman University (FHU) is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools--Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The mission of SACSOC is to assure the educational quality and improve the effectiveness of its member institutions. To that end, SACSCOC aspires to six core values:
Peer Review / Self-regulation
Continuous Quality Improvement
The SACSCOC membership has adopted The Principles of Accreditation, which is comprised of the standards used to guide and direct academic institutions in their pursuit of excellence. Every ten years, member institutions are reviewed by their peers to ensure adherence to these standards. Freed-Hardeman will engage in her decennial reaffirmation in 2021. The reaffirmation process will require the cooperation and collaboration of the entire Freed-Hardeman family to share our mission and strengths with our peers. Our journey in reaffirming our accreditation will begin with the commencement of the Fall 2018 semester.

Over the summer of 2018, members of the Leadership Team and the A-Team were selected for service. In addition, Dr. Rachel Salmon agreed to serve as the QEP Topic Selection chair. A timeline was developed by the Leadership Team that will be used to govern the reaffirmation process. The A-Team reviewed the newly-published 2018 Principles of Accreditation and finalized plans to administer the development of narratives for the Compliance Report. In addition, a style guide was created in support of those faculty and staff who will be writing the narratives. Finally, webpages were created to communicate with University stakeholders as we advance through the reaffirmation process.
