President Eaton recommended that the board approve
the creation of a Specialized/Professional/National Accrediting Association Advisory Panel and
approve the appointment of six individuals to serve on the Advisory Panel from February 1, 1998 to December 31, 2000. The individuals were:
Director, Foundation for Interior Design Education Research;
Lawrence Detmer, Director, Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs;
Olive Kimball, Executive Director, National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science;
Bernard Fryshman, Executive Vice President, Association of Advance Rabbinical and Talmudic Schools;
Carl C. Monk, Executive Vice President, Association of American Law Schools; and
George Peterson, Executive Director, Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc.
The board approved
the advisory panel and the appointment of the recommended panel members.
The panel will advise the president and the board on matters related
to specialized accreditation.
Mr. Gregory Fusco, CHEA's consultant on government affairs, reviewed three key areas where CHEA has been working in government and public policy issues: the National Commission on the Cost of Higher Education and its recent report; the upcoming reauthorization of the Higher Education Act; and work with the Department of Education and its National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity. CHEA's current work is based on the legislative priorities established by the CHEA board of directors in Spring 1997 and is focused on building relationships with the USDE, Congress and the higher education associations, and monitoring timely issues such as distance education, outcomes, and the 1992 amendments to the Higher Education Act affecting accreditation.
Vice president for accreditation services Teddi Safman briefed the board on the one-day Conference on Quality Assurance and Distance Learning held the day following the board meeting. The conference addressed issues of quality assurance, the importance of accreditation to distance education providers, and challenges and strategies for accreditators. CHEA intends to disseminate the conference findings.
