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 Lindgren.
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.
