Statement on Institutional Support and Access to Institutional Data:

A NADE application for accreditation requires significant time, effort and resources to do well.  Therefore, the NADE Accreditation Commission highly recommends that the lead person(s) for a component’s application process have (a) adequate release time or time dedicated to the application; (b) clerical assistance; and (c) significant access to institutional research and/or experts for data collection and analysis. In general, this process requires two to three years to complete.
