Assessment, Accreditation, Approvals and Quality Standards
Madonna University is committed to the highest quality standards for Higher Education. The University uses its own measures of quality as well as standards required by professional and accrediting organizations. Many organizations review the curriculum and facilities, instruction and administration, and the results of student outcomes as part of the approval and accreditation process. The University has designed a comprehensive assessment plan that measures and reports on student achievement as part of this process. Approval by accrediting agencies and professional organizations exist at international, national, regional and state levels. These organizations have varying cycles of review that can be anywhere from one to 10 years. The following is a list of approvals and accreditation:
