Methodology (cont'd)

  • Campus Visit

Members of the accreditation visiting teams will be selected from the membership of institutions which make up AABI and the aviation higher education community at large. Just as AABI has professional representation from the greater aviation community, so too will the visiting team. Each visiting team will be made up of members having different areas of interest and competence so that the institution's programs will receive a thorough and rigorous review. This segment of the evaluation process has three major purposes:

  1. To examine in detail the materials furnished in the self-study report to determine if the information is a reasonable and accurate assessment of the institution, particularly with
    regard to:

    • organization, control and administrative support for the institution and for the specific program(s);
    • breadth, depth, and quality of the aviation academic program(s);
    • breadth, depth, and quality of the faculty, staff and administration of the program(s);
    • admission, retention and graduation criteria for the program(s) and numbers of students admitted, enrolled and graduated;
    • career opportunities, student placement, and advanced education opportunities;
    • faculty teaching loads, research commitments and non-teaching requirements;
    • physical facilities support;
    • financial support.

  2. To assess those factors which cannot be adequately described in the self-study report, intangible qualities which do not lend themselves to quantitative analysis SHOULD be reviewed. Issues of faculty, staff and student morale, intellectual atmosphere, caliber of the faculty, staff and students, and nature and quality of student work, are all intangible factors which are difficult to document yet have profound effects on the overall quality and conduct of the programs.

  3. To assist the institution in identifying and assessing its strengths and weaknesses
  • Team Report

Upon completion of the campus visit, the visiting team will prepare a report describing its findings. The report and the recommendations of the Accreditation Committee will be presented to the AABI Board for its review and subsequent action.
