AACSB accreditation volunteers play a vital role in the foundation of AACSB accreditation and are essential in the peer-reviewed accreditation process. Volunteers can serve in three essential accreditation functions: accreditation committees, mentors, and peer review teams. Various resources are available to ensure accreditation volunteers are successful in their roles.
Each accreditation volunteer role has specific resources available to them, which are on the respective pages for committees, mentors, and peer review teams.
Below are additional resources available to assist accreditation volunteers in their roles.
AACSB Exchange Volunteer Portal
The portal is a resource to easily search and express interest in volunteer opportunities available. Access your profile to complete or update your interests (e.g., countries, type of school), academic field, and any special skills (e.g., foreign language expertise) that may be appropriate in support of your volunteer interest. To get started, visit the AACSB Exchange to access your volunteer profile. If you have already completed a profile, please review it to make sure we have the most up-to-date information.
Accreditation Volunteer Training
The training provides an overview of the different volunteer responsibilities, discusses the philosophies behind the accreditation standards, and offers a detailed description of the accreditation process. The training is delivered both in-person and online.
AACSB Exchange Accreditation Volunteer Community
Accreditation volunteers can connect with peers, check announcements, share experiences, exchange ideas, and discuss topics related to accreditation volunteer activities. Additionally, this members-only site serves as a comprehensive resource for the latest information on the accreditation process and volunteer training opportunities.
Policies and Procedures
Several policies address the accreditation process. Policies that are specific to volunteers include volunteer eligibility, volunteer deployment and selection, conflict of interest, confidentiality, and travel and reimbursable expenses.
