The National Architectural Accrediting Board’s® (NAAB) vision statement asserts its role in enhancing the value, relevance and, and effectiveness of the architectural profession by establishing educational quality assurance standards that are open to diverse approaches by our schools.
One of the fundamental tenets of accreditation is the importance of self-assessment and a commitment to continuous improvement. The NAAB, through its own assessment processes, seeks to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of all aspects of the accreditation process. Underlying this effort is a larger and continual goal of making accreditation less costly to institutions with accredited programs.
