The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) has reaffirmed Randolph-Macon
College’s accreditation for the next ten years.
“This very positive outcome means that R-MC successfully satisfied every single
criteria that SACS mandates we and other colleges follow,” said R-MC President Robert
Re-accreditation is a voluntary peer-review process that colleges and universities
undergo to demonstrate publicly its dedication to enhancing the quality of programs
and services offered. The process also shows the College’s commitment to meeting
SACS standards of creating an environment where teaching, public service, research,
and learning exist. In Randolph-Macon’s case, those actions are carried out under
its mission to “develop the mind and character of its students.”
As part of the continued process of reaccreditation oversight, Randolph-Macon College
will submit this April a follow-up report to SACS, which will include an update
on the implementation and student learning outcomes of its Quality Enhancement Plan
(QEP). A final “Interim Report,” required of all reaccredited institutions, will
be due in five years.
