CIPS Accreditation Councils Meet in Toronto

The CIPS Computer Science Accreditation Council (CSAC) and the Information Systems and Technology Accreditation Council (ISTAC) met in Toronto in June resulting in two very productive days.  In addition to the re-accreditation of various computing and IT-related programs, CSAC also approved changes to its accreditation criteria to align them with the Seoul Accord Graduate Attribute Outcomes and to global accreditation efforts that increasingly have moved towards an outcome based assessment approach. CIPS would like to recognize Dr. Tim Lethbridge, I.S.P., ITCP and Dr. Gayle Yaverbaum, Vice President of the Computer Science Accreditation Board (the lead society within the US based Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology for accreditation of programs in computer science, information systems, software engineering, and information technology) for their contributions in developing the new criteria.

Under the direction of Dr. Peter King, FCIPS, I.S.P., ITCP, both Councils also have embarked on a Quality Assurance and Enhancement process, which will ensure the ongoing monitoring and improving of the accreditation program.
