Compliance Certification Report


This web site responds to the Compliance Certification portion of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ (SACS) Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement.

The Compliance Certification is the document completed by the University of Memphis (UofM) that demonstrates its judgment of the extent of its compliance with each of the Core Requirements, Comprehensive Standards, and Federal Mandates as presented in the Principles of Accreditation. The Compliance Certification document is based upon the UofM's internal analysis and assessment of its compliance with the requirements and standards using the documentation generated or assembled to support the conclusions it has reached regarding compliance. Forty audit teams, comprising more than 250 faculty and staff, participated in this process.

Core Requirement 2.12, which addresses with the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), is not included in this Compliance Certification. The QEP will be submitted to SACS in early 2005, while the Compliance Certification must be submitted by September 10, 2004.
