SPLAD Achieves Master's Accreditation Candidacy
Department granted maximum time
The Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) has completed its review of the Level II Candidacy application for the master’s program in speech-language pathology at Andrews University. Based on a thorough review of all candidacy materials for the program, the CAA voted to award candidacy for a period of five years beginning July 1, 2014.
“The CAA determined that the program demonstrated sufficient compliance with the Standards for Accreditation,” said Joan Blessing, chair of the CAA. “We look forward to working with the faculty at Andrews in the development of the master’s program.”
Award of candidacy allows the program to matriculate students into the program as it continues to document compliance with accreditation standards for the duration of the candidacy accreditation cycle.
“It is very exciting to learn that we have not only been granted candidacy but we have been granted the candidacy for the maximum of five years,” says Heather Ferguson, chair of the Department of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology. “I am thrilled about this progress and continue to thank God for His guidance and for each of the faculty and administrators who enabled us to work together as a team to allow this to happen.”
