8/21/03


DENTON — The Commission on Colleges for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) has reaffirmed accreditation of Texas Woman’s University for an additional 10 years. The action marks 80 years of accreditation of TWU by SACS.

“TWU is a distinguished university with a long history of excellence. Its faculty and staff are the key to its continued success,” said TWU Chancellor Dr. Ann Stuart. “We are immensely proud of this reaffirmation of accreditation.”

The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is the regional body for the accreditation of higher education institutions in the southern states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia) and Latin America awarding associate, baccalaureate, master’s or doctoral degrees.

Accreditation of an institution by the Commission on Colleges signifies the institution has a purpose appropriate to higher education and has resources, programs and services sufficient to accomplish that purpose on a continuing basis. Accreditation evaluates whether an institution maintains clearly specified educational objectives that are consistent with its mission and appropriate to the degrees it offers and whether it is successful in achieving its stated objectives.
