AAQEP is optimistic about the promise of vaccinations and eagerly anticipates being able to travel safely again. Nonetheless, the challenges and disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic are not yet behind us; the U.S. Department of Education has authorized accreditors to continue conducting virtual site visits through the end of the year in light of the unpredictability of the public-health situation.
To facilitate advance planning while protecting individuals’ safety and ability to participate, AAQEP will continue to conduct site visits fully online through at least January 2022. Thank you to each hosting program and to the dedicated reviewers who continue to adjust to and improve the virtual format!
If you are writing an AAQEP Quality Assurance Report, please contact your liaison for guidance on documenting the impacts of pandemic-related disruptions to program operations and data collection.
Despite the ongoing restrictions, AAQEP continues to serve and support your work though monthly cohort meetings, online workshops, and webinar series. We join all of you in looking forward to the return of in-person collaboration soon!
