CollegeSource to Build Policy Portal on Higher Education
The American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) is collaborating with CollegeSource, a provider of transfer and degree achievement solutions, to form a Higher Educational Institutional Policy Portal.
Hailed as the first-of-its-kind, the portal will allow higher education administrators, faculty and staff nationwide to research and compare policies from other institutions.
“As academic and institutional policies have historically been an intrinsic part of institutions’ course catalogs but now are scattered throughout various print and online resources, we recognized the critical need for a policy research and reporting repository to enable collective best practices across the industry,” said Troy Holaday, President, CollegeSource which will work on collecting and developing the policy portal.
Melanie Gottlieb, Deputy Director, AACRAO said that the portal will be an invaluable tool for all the higher education institutions.
“Our members are heavily involved in the development and application of higher education policies and have been clamoring for a searchable, trusted policy repository that can be utilized when developing new or benchmarking existing policies,” said Gottlieb.
The portal is scheduled to be rolled out in late 2020.
