- 2012 Reaffirmation
Reaffirmation in AQIP cannot be viewed as a separate standalone procedure. Rather, AQIP's Reaffirmation procedure is the culmination of all the other AQIP procedures: Strategy Forums, Action Projects, Annual Updates (found on our accreditation status page), Systems Appraisals, and Quality Checkup visits.
Reaffirmation is best conceptualized as the apex of a pyramid supported by all the other AQIP procedures, drawing from them and building on their results. In this way, it is similar to the review by two Accreditation Review Council readers of all the materials related to a comprehensive on-site evaluation review in the PEAQ accreditation process. However, AQIP Reaffirmation involves review of a much broader array of evidence about the institution gathered over a longer period.
