Detailed information is available to members of the AILG community upon request to the Accreditation Coordinator. Please note that the AILG and the MIT administration are actively working with all organizations which received a finding less than "Recommend Accreditation" to resolve the concerns raised by the Visiting Committees.

Interview Time Slots

We will conduct our interviews during two time slots: Morning (9-11:00) and Afternoon (1:00-3:00). Visiting Committees will be composed of three or four members and each Committee will visit two groups. All Visiting Committees will meet as a group for breakfast at 8:15 and for lunch at 12:00. Each Committee is encouraged to work as a team on the preliminary organization of their reports from 11-12 and 3-4 and to send their completed reports to the Accreditation Coordinator within four days.

How you should prepare

Alumni Corporations and Undergraduate Organizations are requested to arrange a review date with the Accreditation Coordinator. The Alumni and Undergraduates are requested to work together to complete the online Basic Data Form, and consolidate and return a single completed form to the Accreditation Coordinator no later than two Sundays preceding the selected date. On the day of the review the Visiting Committee wishes to begin the visit with a brief house tour and then meet with a minimum of three members (at least two of whom should be officers) of the Group's Alumni organization and at least two officers of the Group's Undergraduate organization (to provide a learning opportunity). Ideally many more of the current and future leaders of the organization, both undergraduate and alumni, will be present.

About the Program

Full information on the MIT AILG Accreditation Program, including historical data with past review results, is available at the AILG Accreditation Committee Site.

Summary:The Accreditation Program is an organized review of the living groups within the MIT Fraternity, Sorority, and Independent Living Group (FSILG) community. The program has two main objectives: 1) to provide the MIT administration with a multi-dimensional evaluation of the health of each MIT FSILG, and 2) to create a forum for the AILG, the alumni leaders of MIT FSILG house corporations and advisory boards, and the undergraduates to actively discuss and exchange ideas on improving the FSILG community. We are not aware of any effort close to this scale on other campuses, and believe the Accreditation Program is an important element in developing MIT's FSILG community and deepening the partnership between alumni, MIT, and the undergraduates that has characterized this community.

Our official contact is with each FSILG's alumni organization. As the AILG, the association of the alumni of FSILGs at MIT, our formal dialogue is with our members: the alumni representatives. To streamline the scheduling process, we contact both alumni and undergraduate officers, and both alumni and undergraduates are encouraged to ask questions of and communicate with the Accreditation Coordinator, to participate in the preparation of response forms, and to be present at the reviews. All "official responses" are always expected to be from the alumni officers, who are required to be at the reviews and expected to provide advice to and oversight of the undergraduate participants.
