New Trustees Orientation

All new SACSCOC Trustees are required to participate in a day and half-long orientation session that includes a substantial pre-session homework case-study assignment as well as an off-site reaffirmation committee observation component.

The Orientation activities are designed to address the following goals: provide an overview of the role and scope of accreditation within higher education; discuss membership, organization, and decision-making process of the SACSCOC; familiarize Trustees with their roles and responsibilities within SACSCOC; and enhance the Trustee’s capacity to participate effectively and efficiently in the SACSCOC decision-making process. The major focus of the Orientation’s case-study based activity is on the work of the Compliance and Reports (C&R) Committee, standing committee of the SACSCOC Board of Trustees.

For more information about the New Trustees Orientation, please contact Ms. Carol A. Luthman, Director of Legal and Governmental Affairs, and Commission Support, at or Dr. Alexei G. Matveev, Director of Training and Research, at
