SARA: Working Draft of a State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement

Prepared by NUTN based on Information from the Council of State Governments/Presidents’ Forum

The Lumina Foundation has provided funding to the Presidents’ Forum, working with the Council of State Governments, to develop a “model state reciprocity agreement” that states could adopt to acknowledge other states’ work and decisions in regard to institutional authorization.  SARA, developed as a working draft by a team familiar with these issues, is the current product of that effort.  SARA offers a process that could make state authorization more efficient, more uniform in regard to necessary and reasonable standards of practice that could span states, and more effective in dealing with quality and integrity issues that have arisen in some online/distance education offerings.  It could also be less costly for states and institutions and, thereby, the students they serve.  The achievement of those goals will support the nation in its efforts to increase the educational attainment of its people.
