Accreditation Outside the U.S. – Lessons From Visiting Teams

This presentation is for institutions outside the United States and details some do’s and don’ts in hosting visiting ABET accreditation teams. To assure a quality and an effective visit, accreditation teams comply with the conflict of interest policy, the Accreditation Policy and Procedure Manual, and related guidelines and best practices. This visit framework and cultural differences may sometimes lead to difficult situations for both the institution and the review team. Examples of lessons learned from previous visits will be discussed. After attending this presentation, institutions will have a clear and streamlined process for hosting ABET teams. We expect a lively Q&A session following the presentation.
