Accreditation Governing Commission of the United States of America is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, ISO 9001:2000 certified, accrediting agency, registered in Washington (D.C). AGC-USA examines and evaluates higher education institutions from every country to promote sound education and good business practices.

Our Mission
The Accreditation Governing commission is devoted to intensify the performance of boards of public and private higher education.
By serving as a continuing-education resource to trustees and boards and by contributing to effective working relationships between boards and chief executives, AGC seeks to strengthen the governance of higher education institutions.
Accreditation Governing Commission recognizes its leadership responsibilities to members and to a diverse system of higher education. The association strongly believes in citizen control of our colleges and universities, rather than direct government control, and works to ensure that higher education remains a strong and vital national asset.

The Commission's Objectives
AGC carries out its mission adhering to the following objectives:

  • To educate individual trustees and boards on matters that affect their institutional oversight responsibilities

  • To promote wider understanding of and appreciation for citizen leadership and lay governance as the only effective ways to ensure the quality and independence of American higher education

  • To advance the philosophy that all elected or appointed trustees serve in the public trust and should consider themselves trustees of higher education as a whole

  • To strengthen the relationship between trustees and chief executives in the fulfillment of their distinct yet complementary responsibilities

  • To stimulate cooperation with public-policy makers, government agencies, and private organizations that have a stake in the effective governance and quality of colleges and universities

  • To identify and study emerging public-policy issues of concern to higher education by providing forums for their discussion and by encouraging appropriate member initiative.
