"The goals of accreditation are effectiveness, improvement, and public assurance.  Accreditation relies on a voluntary, peer review process, engaging some 3,400 educators in the region on hundreds of reviews in any year. A self-study process of 12-18 months is undertaken by schools in regular review cycles. Unlike popular magazines, this does not involve ranking schools, but rather establishes a level of acceptable quality for all accredited schools."
