We use Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) and Letters of Intent (LOI) to formalize and structure our collaborative efforts with peer accrediting agencies outside the United States during their developmental period.
Unlike a Mutual Recognition Agreement, an MOU does not recognize the “substantial equivalency” of an organization’s accreditation processes or graduates’ preparedness to begin professional practice.
Activities through an MOU (or LOI) may include the sharing of best practices, assisting organizations in the development of accreditation processes, and providing training workshops for staff and volunteers of peer organizations.
We currently maintain the following MOUs and LOIs.
Western Hemisphere Initiative (Mexico and Canada)
Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers
Letter of Intent
Ministry of Higher Education, Ukraine
