What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is an annual assessment process implemented in 2004-2005. It is a comprehensive review and assessment of all facets of chapter operations and is a key process in the development and maintenance of chapter standards. Chapters are required to submit an annual report and conduct a presentation to a panel of faculty, staff, students and alumni. Throughout the academic year, undergraduate chapters receive significant training and coaching related to the Accreditation process. Chapters are rated and given feedback through reports and chapter development questions that they are encouraged to consider in their planning for the following year.
2019-2020 Accreditation Updated Timeline
OFSA acknowledges the unusual nature of the spring 2020 semester, starting with the Pause on Greek Life earlier this semester followed by remote learning earlier this month. With that being said, we have decided to put the Accreditation evaluatory process on hold for 2019-2020. In place of Accreditation, chapters will complete a Year End Report. Following their submission, their Assistant Director will offer specific and meaningful feedback with suggested action items chapters should address in 2020-2021. The deadline for the completion of this report is Friday, May 1, 2020 by 11:59pm.
Chapter leadership will be receiving communcations and access to a Year End Report template, as well as additional resources.
