This conference provides an overview of all 11 ABHE Institutional Accreditation Standards, along with the 149 Essential Elements that must be met to satisfy each standard.  The presentation-discussion format provides opportunity for participants to explore situations at their institutions and seek advice from the ABHE professional staff and senior evaluators on how to address those situations in the context of the standards. A self-assessment opportunity will be included to develop a working agenda for addressing areas that need improvement before hosting an evaluation team. This conference is beneficial to individuals who will have significant responsibilities in preparing their institutions for an evaluation team visit, whether reaffirmation, initial accreditation, or candidacy.  Institutions are encouraged to bring their accreditation team/accreditation planning committee to make this a meaningful hands-on preparation for hosting a comprehensive evaluation team visit.
