LITRE: Learning In A Technologically-Rich Environment Banner NC State University
Welcome to LITRE

LITRE and SACS

SACS (http://www.sacscoc.org/) requires, as a part of our reaffirmation of accreditation, the creation of a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The QEP is critical to the institution and is for the institution. Our QEP must improve student learning and the learning environment.

The final version of the LITRE Plan was released in February 2004, and the SACS review culminated with the official visit in March. The LITRE Advisory Board was formed in the spring of 2004 and in April the focus shifted to implementation of the plan.

In December 2004, NC State's accreditation was reaffirmed for a period of ten years by the Commission on Colleges, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).

The Commission's action brings to a close nearly three years of work by teams of faculty and staff, who prepared compliance reports and a quality enhancement plan for "Learning in a Technology-Rich Environment" (LITRE). All activities were guided by a Leadership Team chaired by Provost James L. Oblinger. NC State was in the first class of institutions to be reaffirmed using new standards and a new review process implemented by SACS.

The Commission found NC State to be in compliance with all standards and requires no further reports at this time. NC State's next step in continuing accreditation will be a report in 2009 on progress toward implementing the LITRE plan.
