Designed for accredited schools, the Continuous Improvement Review (CIR) Seminar will prepare your administrators for the CIR process from the first year of the cycle to the CIR visit. Engage in interactive discussions on the foundation of accreditation and  review the philosophy of the principles-based 2020 accreditation standards with your peers, giving particular focus to changes in the standards. Explore the CIR philosophy and each component of the CIR report from the lens of your school, and examine how your school’s strategies and outcomes relate to engagement, innovation, and impact. Learn about the expectations of the key accreditation committees and the peer review team to better understand their purpose and how they fit into your CIR process. Build your peer network while developing the best strategy for your school’s upcoming continuous improvement review.

AACSB recommends that you attend this seminar two years before a scheduled visit.
