[INFO] Kean/WKU CBPM AACSB Accreditation Application

by Jeonghwan (Jerry) Choi 2022. 9. 23.

Since 2015, Kean University College of Business and Public Management has engaged in applying for AACSB Accreditation in order to transform the school into a prominent business school to serve our students, college, and community better. 

 

2017 and 2019, Kean CBPM received several requests for significant improvement for accreditation from AACSB. 

 

In 2019, the New Dean, Dr. Wang Jin's leadership, Kean CBPM, shifted the gear to the AACSB. And, we are heading to the Accreditation.

Guiding Principles and Expectations for Accredited Schools: 

 

 

*Guiding Principle #1:  Ethics and Integrity.  The school encourages and supports ethical behavior and integrity by learners, faculty, administrators, and staff in all its activities. The school is expected to have appropriate policies and procedures that attest to a strong emphasis on ethical behavior as well as a mechanism for identifying and remediating behavior by those associated with the conduct of the business school. It is expected that internal disputes between learners and faculty or faculty and administration are dealt with at the school level. In particular, individual faculty personnel disputes are to be dealt with through local school channels. Only pervasive issues with systemic implications rise to the level of AACSB involvement and fall under the purview of this provision (e.g., a pattern of systematic discrimination against a particular group of learners or faculty).  

 

*Guiding Principle #7:  Collegiality. The school maintains a collegiate environment. Mutual respected, collaboration, and trust are pursued to enable the business school to promote a positive culture that is supportive of the school's strategic mission and goals, faculty development, learner success, and thought leadership. The school promotes shared governance and active participation by a cross-section of faculty in universally and college service.

2022. Dec. 04: Tobin's Email for AACSB Site Visit Preparation

 

Self-Evaluation Report (SER) was submitted November 17th, 2022 and the Peer Review Team is identifying areas where they need additional information or clarification.

 

 

 

Monday January 23rd, 2023

Dean Jacob Chacko (Clayton State University) will visit the KUSA – Union Campus for a pre-visit. Dean Chacko is the chair of the Peer Review Team (PRT) and is providing the pre-visit to give his feedback on our Self Evaluation Report and begin meeting with faculty and administration.  While on campus he will meet with Dean Wang, the AACSB Steering Committee and the Assessment Coordinators.

 

Sunday April 2nd through Wednesday April 5th,

the Peer Review Team will visit the KUSA – Union campus. Details will be coming but you can anticipate that the team will want to meet with key groups including students, curriculum committee, tenure-track faculty, lecturers, tenured faculty, adjunct faculty, assessment committee, board of advisors, college administration, etc.

 

The PRT will also evaluate our Wenzhou campus. While they prefer to visit in-person, that may not be possible so a virtual visit could be necessary. We will have more information on the WKU PRT engagement in the new year.

 

Over the coming weeks I will provide updates to prepare the campus community for a successful PRT visit and completion of our initial AACSB accreditation.
