A&T SACS Reaffirmation


Welcome to the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University SACS website.  A&T is in the 2010 cohort for reaffirmation by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.  This site provides a detailed view of A&T's compliance with SACS Core Requirements, Comprehensive Standards, and Federal Requirements. The Chancellor's Cabinet led the reaffirmation.

Recognizing that SACS reaffirmation is a university-wide effort requiring the active participation of a broad swath of university stakeholders, we engaged an interdisciplinary team of administrators, faculty, staff, and students.  In addition, the A&T Board of Trustees supported the SACS effort by sharing their thoughts on the student learning outcomes focus of the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).

We began our SACS reaffirmation journey in fall 2007 with the establishment of a 25-member SACS Steering Committee. Twelve subcommittee chairs were selected from the SACS Steering Committee and charged with recruiting and forming their individual teams. The subcommittees were assigned various SACS Principles to draft. To ensure compliance, a twelve-member SACS Document Review Committee read the narratives and provided feedback to the subcommittees.  Additionally, a four-member SACS Review Panel went over the reports a second time.

Other committees contributing to the effort included the SACS QEP Committee, QEP Marketing Committee, and a six-member SACS Policies Task Group.  The SACS Liaisons in the offices of the deans were a critical connection to their schools and colleges in helping us collect information and documents.

Thanks to all Aggies, and others, who assisted with the reaffirmation.


The A&T SACS website is menu driven, allowing you to access documents in several ways.  The main menu gives you access to compliance reports by categories.   If you click on "Core Requirements" under the Compliance Reports menu option, a list of narratives is displayed.  The list continues on several pages.

In the center of the home page are three tabs:  Welcome, Navigator, and Principles.  The "Navigator" tab takes you to an electronic copy of these instructions.  The "Principles" tab takes you to a complete listing of the SACS Principles.  Clicking on the principle number, or the narrative title, will take you to the report.

At the end of each narrative report you will see a list of the Supporting Documents for that SACS Principle.  View the documents by clicking on the hyperlink title.  Supporting documents are PDF file types and easily readable using Adobe Acrobat.  A downloadable Adobe Acrobat Reader v9.0 is provided on the DVD in the "SACS.Additional Software" folder.  Clicking on the reference numbers in the narrative, for example [1], takes you to the supporting documents section at the end of the narrative.  Click on the supporting document name to display the document. If you click on a document number in the Supporting Documents list at the end of a narrative before you click on any of the document numbers within that narrative, the narrative report closes.

The lower left menu with the SACS Principles listed provides quick access to each narrative report and its supporting documents.
