Policy Statement:

Accreditation is viewed as a necessary and valued means of quality assurance and self-improvement. Institutional accreditation should serve to ensure continuous self-review of mission, faculty, programs, resources, and support services, while specialized accreditation serves to improve professional education, prepare graduates for professional licensing, and protect the public. The University of Maine System supports the accreditation activities of its institutions.
