  • ACCREDITATIONHigh-quality programs seek accreditation in order to validate they are striving for excellence. We believe that this pursuit matches the biblical directive of approving things that are excellent (Philippians 1:10, KJV).

    The accredited seal denotes a program that has met institutional standards of quality and made a commitment to strategic improvement and ongoing accountability.

    The process of accreditation involves three significant elements. 1. Program-wide self-appraisal, analysis, and improvement planning2. Peer consultation, review, validation, and insights3. Ongoing accountability for program improvement
