CoARC Site Visitors


CoARC Site Visitors are knowledgeable and experienced volunteers that conduct the on-site evaluation which is one of the most important and critical functions of the accreditation process.  The on-site review team acts as objective observer and verifier of evidence of compliance with CoARC's Accreditation Standards.  They report back to the CoARC Referee as a part of the ongoing process of accreditation and reaccreditation.
