What is the COE looking for in a college's SOPs?

Q: What are the essential aspects required in an SOP, such as controlled copies or authorizing signatures that the site visit team would look for during a visit?
A: The Council is not that prescriptive. A college is expected to evaluate its needs and to develop systems that meet those needs effectively. It's important to demonstrate that the SOPs are current and in use. For example, if students or faculty are asked about SOPs related to bio-security or isolation procedures, they should be aware that the SOPs exist, demonstrate some familiarity with them, and know where they are available for reference.
