Welcome to Louisiana State University’s Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) accreditation website, which provides an overview of the activities currently underway as the university prepares for reaffirmation in 2014.

Included in this site is an overview of the reaffirmation process, which began in the summer of 2011 with the appointment of the Director of Reaffirmation of Accreditation Dr. Darrell Henry, Campanile Charities Professor of Geology and Geophysics. Dr. Henry oversees the work of a steering committee comprised of faculty, staff, and students from a variety of different disciplines and areas of expertise. The committee was established to oversee the development of the compliance certification


This process also includes the development of a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). Overseeing this process is the QEP Team, which is composed of faculty, staff, and students and led by Dr. Carol O’Neil, QEP Team Chair and Class of 1941 Alumni Professor in the LSU School of Human Ecology.

I encourage you to contact the members of the leadership team, steering committee, or QEP Team for any questions or concerns you may have. Working toward reaffirmation of accreditation will be among the university’s top initiatives for the next few years, and I invite the campus community's input and involvement throughout this process.
