WASHINGTON, D.C. – Members of the Council of Regional Accrediting Commissions (C-RAC) have each launched resource centers on their individual websites to provide information and guidance to support institutions as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Barbara Gellman-Danley, chair of C-RAC and president of the Higher Learning Commission, said, “We want institutions nationwide to know accrediting commissions remain available to provide necessary guidance and recommendations as colleges and universities determine how to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
