Updated: Apr 17

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. Our teams are working around-the-clock to monitor the ongoing situation and assess how institutions can continue to best provide quality education opportunities to students in the wake of this crisis. Institutions are encouraged to visit the links below to explore how their accrediting commission is adjusting policies and offering best practices to help ease the transition to virtual programming.”
