Based on a motion filed by the Initial Accreditation Committee (IAC), ACC
approved the following motion to modify the process for peer review team
A. Schools continue to submit a list of comparable and aspirant
peers and select one visit team member from that list.
B. The IAC/AAC/MAC Chair, in collaboration with the school,
appoints the team chair.
C. The IAC/AAC/MAC Chair selects one visit team member. This
member may, but does not have to, come from the comparable
schools list that was submitted by the applicant school.
D. For the selection of accounting peer review team members the
AAC chair will select the chair of the team and the school will
select the team member (the list of peer schools submitted by
the applicant school may be used for the selection of the chair).
E. Consensus must be reached between the business school
and/or accounting program and the IAC/AAC/MAC Chair on the
composition of the peer review team as a whole.
The above policy will be incorporated into the Maintenance and Initial
accreditation handbooks in January 2006 and will be effective with the selection
of peer review teams for 2007-08.
Peer review team selection policy developed September 2005
