Southern Illinois University Carbondale's programs or units are accredited by a diverse
group of accrediting agencies. Accreditation provides assurance to the public, in particular
to prospective students, that a program has been found to meet the agency's clearly stated
requirements and criteria and that there are reasonable grounds for believing that it will
continue to meet them. The process of accreditation provides an opportunity for critical
self-analysis leading to improvement in quality and for consultation and advice from persons
from other institutions. (Source: The Higher Learning Commission)
