Welcome

Gene Block

Welcome to the UCLA Reaccreditation Web site. Here you will find a full account of UCLA’s process for reaccreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), our regional accreditation agency.

Accreditation indicates that UCLA meets high standards of quality, capacity, and effectiveness. UCLA is proud to have been accredited by WASC since March 6, 1949, and I am pleased to report that, having successfully completed a rigorous three-stage review process, UCLA has once again been reaccredited. In the Commission’s Action Letter, UCLA was commended for the “exemplary way in which it has engaged each stage of the accrediting process.”  Hundreds of faculty and staff participated in this effort, which led to the establishment of the undergraduate capstone project, improvements in educational technology, and a stronger focus on interdisciplinary opportunities.  These and other outcomes will continue to guide UCLA’s educational improvement efforts during the next decade and beyond.

In recognizing the contributions of so many, I want to thank particularly the UCLA WASC Reaccreditation Steering Committee and the inspired leadership of Vice Provost Judith Smith, who has served as our WASC Accreditation Liaison Officer since 2006.  

Please take a few minutes to review this site and to learn more about UCLA’s reaccreditation process. I appreciate your interest in the process and the archived reports.  Our next review will begin in 2018.
