Most of us probably didn’t want to be accreditation experts when we grew up. Accreditation leaders tend to fall into the role because of their talents and their vision for how accreditation serves staff and faculty, students, and the institution as a whole.

That’s why we’ve created a space for accreditation leaders on campus to learn from institutional effectiveness experts through fulfilling and authentic conversations.

In this trailer episode of Accreditation Conversations, producer Jordan Alford interviews host Amy Dykens, CEO at Weave Education, about what listeners should expect from the podcast.

Join Amy and Jordan to learn about:

  • Our guests: accreditation leaders of all programs or institutions
  • Our themes: funding, processes, engagement, student learning, and more
  • Our audience: anyone who wants to hear the inside scoop from both sides of the accreditation ecosystem
