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.
