AACSB accreditation volunteers play a vital role in the foundation of AACSB accreditation and are essential in the peer-review accreditation process. Volunteers can serve in three essential accreditation functions: accreditation committee members, mentors, and peer review team members. Various resources are available to ensure accreditation volunteers are successful in their roles.
Each accreditation volunteer role has specific resources available to them, which are on the respective pages for committees, mentors, and peer review teams.
The following are additional resources available to assist accreditation volunteers in their roles.
AACSB Exchange Volunteer Portal
The portal is a resource for individuals to easily search and express interest in available volunteer opportunities. Access your profile to complete or update your interests (e.g., countries, type of school), academic field, and any special skills (e.g., foreign language expertise) that may be appropriate in support of your volunteer interest. To get started, visit the AACSB Exchange to access your volunteer profile. If you have already completed a profile, please review it to make sure we have the most current information.
Accreditation Volunteer Training
Accreditation volunteer training provides an overview of the different volunteer responsibilities, discusses the philosophies behind the accreditation standards, and offers information on volunteer preparation, visit execution, report writing, and best practices.
AACSB Exchange Accreditation Volunteer Community
Accreditation volunteers can connect with peers, check announcements, share experiences, exchange ideas, and discuss topics related to accreditation volunteer activities. Additionally, this member-only site serves as a resource for the latest information on the accreditation process and volunteer training opportunities.
Accreditation Policies and Procedures
Several policies address the accreditation process. Policies that are specific to volunteers include volunteer eligibility, volunteer deployment and selection, conflict of interest, confidentiality, and travel and reimbursable expenses.
