The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges requires that all accredited institutions have official transcripts on file for all active faculty. Complying with the accreditation standards of the SACS Commission on Colleges signifies that Emory University (1) has a mission and objective that is applicable to higher education, (2) has the ability to sustain that mission through the use of appropriate programs, resources and services, and (3) remains consistent with the degrees and teachings that are offered. As a component of Emory University, the School of Medicine must comply with this expectation.
