An EDUCAUSE session of interest from 2009:

"Maintaining compliance to SACS Principles of Accreditation standards following a successful reaffirmation visit is challenging. Changes in personnel over time, the rise of other pressing institutional matters (both internally and externally), the lack of a near-term deadline (i.e., a reaffirmation visit), and loss of technical support can contribute to inattention to maintaining high levels of compliance following reaffirmation. How does an institution maintain high levels of compliance without a "high maintenance" compliance program? Technology can add significant power to the accreditation process through interactive, collaborative websites for campus functional leaders and ease the review process for accreditation reviewers and evaluators. Come hear how the "evidence of compliance" could be made visible with data stored in campus systems and also share your thoughts on ways to insert technology into the campus accreditation process."
