  Accreditation Update

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges continued Sherman’s accreditation at its December 2007 meeting, but placed the college on warning for failure to comply with Core Requirement 2.12 (Quality Enhancement Plan).

The college has worked diligently to meet SACS’ requirements for the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) and will take the additional steps necessary to satisfy the commission and remain on track for reaffirmation in the coming months. The college remains accredited through this process.

On January 16, 2008, SACS provided information to assist the college in refining the QEP to satisfy the Commission. This process will involve a broad-based constituency including students, faculty and staff. In April or May, SACS will send a special committee to review the revised QEP and also to examine the college’s adherence to important academic, grievance and governance policies.

The SACS Commission will once again consider Sherman College’s reaffirmation at its June 2008 meeting. The college looks forward to improving the QEP and policies to improve both the institution as a whole and the doctor of chiropractic program.
