The National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI, pronounced nah-SEEK-eeh) is an advisory body that makes recommendations to the U.S. Secretary of Education "on matters related to accreditation and to the eligibility and certification process for institutions of higher education.".[1] It recommends which accreditation agencies should be recognized by the Department of Education. Without the seal of approval of a recognized higher education accrediting bodies, colleges and universities cannot receive federal funds.

History[edit]

NACIQI was established in 1992, under the Higher Education Amendments to the Higher Education Act of 1965. The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 changed the structure of NACIQI from a 15 member committee appointed by the Secretary of Education to an 18 member committee appointed equally by the House, the Senate, and the Secretary of Education.
