Dear Sir / Madam,
As general manager, it is my pleasure to give you a very warm welcome, through this first newsletter, to our newly established and officially registered Accreditation Agency of Curacao (AAC). This monthly newsletter will, I hope, help keep you updated on our latest news and provide you with vital information concerning all of our activities, undertakings, and endeavors.
The purpose of the AAC is the promotion of quality assurance in education and professional training. The AAC has been established to accredit degree programs at universities, universities of applied sciences, colleges and professional schools (bachelor, master and doctoral study programs) and higher education institutions in Curacao as well as abroad.
Our Academic Board, Accreditation Commission, as well as our office are occupied by esteemed and highly qualified individuals from the academic world and from the private and public sectors. All of these persons pursue the AAC’s vision of academic excellence, influence and uniqueness. We will of course in the future continue to recruit and engage people with ambition, and bring together teams with the skills, strengths and identities to make a difference!
Starting in September 2017, the AAC will formally start to conduct procedures for the accreditation of educational programs in all disciplines (program accreditation) as well as procedures for the accreditation of educational institutions, both locally and around the globe.
The AAC, its Academic Board, Accreditation Commission, and office staff are very confident that the next academic year will provide us with many interesting and varying challenges and we look forward to working together with our clients to ensure that the highest quality standards are always met.
