The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges is one of the six regional institutional accreditors in the United States. SACSCOC accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the Southern states.

At Faculty Success, we recognize that faculty activities can provide a wealth of valuable data for your compliance certification report. That’s why we’ve worked with a variety of SACS-accredited institutions to better understand the needs and develop a series of base reports that can be used to support the Principles of Accreditation.

For more details on the specific reports that are currently a part of the SACS Base Report Suite, view the following articles:

SACS Professional Development Summary Report

We are continually working to expand this suite of reports and are also happy to work with individual institutions to develop custom reports to further support accreditation needs.

The table below is a quick matrix, describing some of the Principles where Faculty Success can provide support and evidence. Some of these reports are already available for you to put in place now (simply submit a work request!) and others are reports we are considering for future development. Let us know in the comments section if some of the “potential reports” listed would be beneficial to you!
