Welcome to the Tennessee Accreditation Network!
The Tennessee Accreditation Network is a resource for accreditation and assessment professionals at SACSCOC-accredited Tennessee-based higher education institutions. The network is facilitated by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) and institutions across the state.
The Tennessee Accreditation Network is a group of accreditation liaisons and other higher education professionals dedicated to improving the academic quality, accountability, and self and peer evaluation processes of SACSCOC member institutions across the state.
The mission of the Tennessee Accreditation Network is to support the accreditation efforts of Tennessee higher education institutions through the collective knowledge, ongoing experiences, and shared resources of its members.
The Tennessee Accreditation Network will be a valuable resource for public and private member institutions as it inspires its members to enhance their knowledge, experience, and service to their respective constituents.
We, the Tennessee Accreditation Network, will accomplish our mission by
- Aim #1—encouraging continuous improvement in quality and innovation;
- Aim #2—sharing our collective accreditation and assessment expertise through professional development activities, networking, and mentoring;
- Aim #3—sharing institutional resources to include good practices and institutional data and information; and
- Aim #4—providing a discussion forum about accreditation-related topics and a collective voice among the accreditation community.
