Assessment and Accreditation Council

The University of North Carolina System’s Assessment and Accreditation Co-Council is dedicated to improving institutional effectiveness through system-wide assessment that will foster a culture of excellence at all UNC institutions. The Council includes members from each of the 17 System institutions and recognizes that stakeholders include students, faculty, staff, and administration.

The purpose of the council is to create a community of assessment leaders sharing best practices, providing support, and serving as peers.

  • To articulate and apply the UNC ACC guiding principles.
  • To serve as resources regarding assessment and educate others in the System about assessment.
  • To advocate for best practices in assessment.
  • To serve in an advisory capacity to the Board of Governors and UNC System Office.
  • To build bridges between all stakeholders and connect all involved in assessment across the campuses.
