Updated by nortiz@nc-sara.org on Tue, 06/01/2021 - 13:47
Between June 2021 and May 2022, NC-SARA, along with its regional compact partners (MHEC, NEBHE, SREB, and WICHE), will transition from a biannual policy review and revision cycle to an annual policy review and revision cycle. 
 
  • This memo provides an overview of this transition schedule and next steps.
Monday, August 2, 2021 is the deadline for the submission of comments on the 21st Century Guidelines for accreditors for the October 2021 board meeting and new proposals for policy modifications for consideration for the May 2022 board meeting. 
 
  • SARA state members will receive specific guidance from their regional compacts about the process by which to share comments on the 21st Century Guidelines for October 2021 and new proposals for policy modifications for consideration for May 2022.
  • SARA participating institutions will be emailed a survey link from NC-SARA in order to submit comments on the 21st Century Guidelines for October 2021 and new proposals for policy modifications for consideration for May 2022.
  • Members of the public may submit comments on the 21st Century Guidelines or new proposals for policy modifications to NC-SARA by emailing info@nc-sara.org. Please include a detailed rationale for your suggestions or comments.
