General Policies and Bylaws

MEMAAC fulfills an evaluative and accrediting function for a particular sector of education that is primarily vocational and art related.

Accreditation is an independent appraisal of an institution during which the institution’s overall educational quality (including outcomes), professional status among similar institutions, financial stability, and operational ethics are self-evaluated and judged by peers. It is a voluntary activity separate and distinct from business licensing, authority to award educational credentials, and eligibility to administer student financial assistance.

The mission of the Middle East – Mediterranean – Asia Accreditation Council is to advance educational excellence at independent, nonpublic vocational and art schools, colleges, and organizations in the Middle East throughout the Mediterranean and Asia. This is achieved through a deliberate and thorough accreditation process of quality assurance and enhancement as well as ethical business and educational practices.
