ALOs and IE Leaders: Partners in Accreditation

Vince Erario

Always called to a life of helping others, Dr. Vince Erario, Director of Institutional Effectiveness, Planning and Research at Life University, accidentally found himself in education. Kicking off his career with nearly three decades of service as a chiropractor, Vince dipped his toes in politics, quality assurance and clinical work.

On this episode, Vince joins us to discuss his non-traditional path into accreditation and his lifelong journey of learning and helping others.

Join us as we discuss how:

  • Varying backgrounds of assessment and accreditation leaders contribute to the profession
  • Assessment and accreditation leaders partner together to best tell the institution’s story
  • Experiences from being a peer reviewer inform one’s approach to this work
