2011 NAAB Architecture Program Report and NAAB Visiting Team Report
The Architecture Program Report (APR) is a narrative document that is comprehensive and self-analytical. It is expected to succinctly describe how a program meets each of the conditions for accreditation.
The Visiting Team Report (VTR) conveys the visiting team’s assessment of whether the program meets the Conditions for Accreditation, as measured by evidence of student learning, the overall capacity of the program to fulfill its obligations to ensure student achievement, and the overall learning environment. It reports the degree to which the program is functioning in the manner described in the APR.
The Board of Directors of the NAAB review all VTRs at their annual meeting in July. The Board of Directors take into consideration recommendations made by the NAAB visiting team when determining the term of accreditation. Terms of accreditation are communicated via a formal letter between the Board and the University's president.
Unless specifically noted in the Board’s decision, all terms of accreditation are effective on January 1 of the year in which the visit took place. Conversely, all terms of accreditation expire on January 1 of the year in which a visit is scheduled to take place unless and until the NAAB approves a motion for a term of accreditation.
