Sherman College Completes Positive Visit with Regional Accrediting Team

APRIL 16, 2001 -  A team of higher education administrators and faculty from the southern United States completed an extensive on-site evaluation of Sherman College recently as part of the college’s pursuit of regional accreditation with the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The agency accredits area institutions such as Duke University, the University of South Carolina and Converse College.

Our interaction with the SACS Visiting Team represented the culmination of more than two years of work,” explained Brian J. McAulay, D.C., Ph.D., interim president. “Our faculty and staff invested long hours and significant energy to conduct an extensive assessment of every aspect of the college’s educational and administrative operations and prepare a 300-page Self-Study Report for submission to SACS prior to their visit.”

When the team arrived on campus April 5, the members met with faculty, staff and students to determine if the college is operating in a manner consistent with the Criteria for Accreditation of the Commission on Colleges of SACS. At the conclusion of the visit the team prepared a written report for submission to the Commission and conducted an exit interview with senior college personnel.

The report from the visiting team was very positive and helpful,” McAulay said. “We will not receive notification of our accreditation status until the Commission meets in June, but we appreciate the time, hard work and feedback we received from the visiting team. It is very rewarding to receive external, objective validation from an accrediting agency that Sherman College is a well run, high quality institution,” he said.

McAulay commended Leroy Moore, D.C., ‘76, senior vice president for institutional advancement, for his outstanding and tireless work in leading the Self-Study process on campus.

Holding regional accreditation would facilitate stronger relationships with other SACS-accredited academic institutions, open opportunities for research collaboration and create the possibility of developing a bachelor’s program at Sherman College.
