Dr. Judith Eaton
Dr. Judith S. Eaton is president of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), the largest institutional higher education membership organization in the United States. A national advocate and institutional voice for self-regulation of academic quality through accreditation, CHEA is an association of 3,000 degree-granting colleges and universities. Her keynote presentation, The Federal Context for Accreditation, will explore what is happening with accreditation as the new Congress and new Administration establish themselves. Are the past few years of increasing federal oversight of our work continuing, or are we seeing a change in direction?
