Site Team Evaluator

Accreditation team consultant-evaluators (aka site team members) are those persons selected by the accrediting commission to perform the on-site peer evaluation of an institution undergoing some phase of accreditation. Evaluation team members chosen carefully by the commission to ensure an appropriate breadth and depth of expertise on the team. The commission also selects an experienced person to chair the evaluation team; that person is responsible for coordinating team activities and for the final editing and submission of the evaluation report.

I’ve participated on site team evaluations since 1997. I’ve done accreditation visits, either as a team member or a team chairperson, for the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Chiropractic Education, the Council on Chiropractic Education-Canada, and the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education.
