The Pathways Model

The new Open Pathways model of accreditation involves two major components: a Quality Initiative and an Assurance Agreement.

 

A Quality Initiative...

is a major project focusing on the future. For Pittsburg State University, this focus was on three core areas: general education core (writing, mathematics and speech) and co-curricular learning.

 

The Assurance Argument...

is a component of the accreditation process that explores PSU's past and present. It consists of an electronic portfolio documenting how we meet the five HLC criteria for accreditation. PSU wass one of six institutions that worked with the commission to alpha test the new technology platform for this e-portfolio.
