Accreditation For nearly a hundred years (Millard, 1994) regional associations have engaged in the accreditation of colleges and universities. Specialized accreditation of programs has developed during similar period of time. Until recently, this form of providing public assurance has been the accepted standard, but in recent years, calls for federal involvement in the accreditation of institutions have become more vigorous (Dickeson, 2006). The essence of the criticism is that higher education has not undergone appropriate scrutiny; more rigorous measures of evaluation are necessary, since institutional accreditation has been voluntary and is conducted by peers as opposed to governmental or other external bodies.
