Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to propose a participatory stakeholder engagement approach to institutional accreditation particularly in the online for-profit sector. Components of this approach are inclusion, engagement, and mutually valued goals of revenue generation, student outcomes, and social responsibility. The approach is applied to several accreditation themes including mission, governance, faculty, institutional effectiveness, and public good. It concludes with a path forward for accreditors and institutions.
