SACS Reaffirms Sherman College’s Accreditation

The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) has reaffirmed Sherman College’s accreditation and removed the institution from probation. The Commission notified the college of its action – taken at the Commission’s June 2009 meeting – via a letter dated July 13 and received July 17.

The letter upholds the April 2009 SACS special committee sentiments regarding the college’s “true commitment to the spirit of peer review” and officially reaffirms the institution’s accreditation. During the April visit, the site team found no areas of recommendation for the college and noted the progress made during the previous year, as well as the institution’s potential for growth.

Brice Crawford, D.C., ’06, of Clovis, NM:

“One of the local chiropractors came in to the office just now and introduced himself and asked for an adjustment. He heard I was from Sherman. There are several other chiropractors in the community who have been here for years, but he chose a Sherman graduate for an adjustment. I’m not surprised – after all, we are the best adjusters on the planet!”
