Governing Documents


CAAHEP has a number of publications that may be of assistance to anyone who is interested in learning more about CAAHEP activities.

The CAAHEP Bylaws describe the structure and procedures under which CAAHEP operates.  Within the Bylaws you will find our commission structure, how the Board of Directors is elected and permanent CAAHEP committees.

The CAAHEP Standards Template is the document on which all CAAHEP Standards are based.

The CAAHEP Policies and Procedures Manual sets out all CAAHEP policies. Information regarding the responsibilities of the Commission and the Board of Directors are found in this publication. Additionally, information regarding accreditation recommendations, Standards development and approval, entrance into the CAAHEP system of accreditation by a profession, etc., are all found in this publication.

The CAAHEP Organizational Chart provides a diagram of the CAAHEP structure.

The Strategic Plan is a guiding document of the organization, providing a brief overview of where CAAHEP “is going.” The 2019-2021 Strategic Plan can be viewed in a PowerPoint presentation.
