The institutional effectiveness team hosts quarterly meetings of the UT System Institutional Effectiveness Network (UTSIEN), a forum for inter-campus collaboration and sharing best practices in accreditation, planning, assessment, and institutional research.

What is institutional accreditation?

Accreditation is a peer-review process by which institutions of higher education evaluate and enhance quality via the attainment of minimum standards. View a list of institutional accrediting agencies recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. All campuses of the University of Tennessee System are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
