Government Relations

CHEA is currently participating in negotiated rulemaking in which the regulations to accompany statutory changes are developed by the Department of Education in consultation with various higher education constituencies. Two major sessions are scheduled for May. Key issues in negotiated rulemaking for accreditors include validity and reliability, branch campuses, and the twelve-month rule.

Council of Regional Accrediting Commissions (CRAC) 

The regional accreditors were continuing to devote significant time to the important issue of how regional accreditation can address emerging multi-regional, national, and global providers.
