Campbell earns accreditation of Master’s in School Administration program

The Association for Advancing Quality in Educator Preparation (AAQEP) has awarded a five-year initial accreditation status to the Master’s in School Administration program at Campbell University. The program has been awarded initial accreditation status by AAQEP through Dec. 31, 2028.

Accreditation acknowledges that a program prepares effective educators who continue to grow as professionals and has demonstrated the commitment and capacity to maintain quality.

After reviewing the evidence collected through a process of self-study and peer review, the AAQEP Accreditation Commission issued the decision at its Feb. 20 meeting. The Commission’s action affirms that the program meets all four AAQEP standards.

“The School of Education & Human Sciences is pleased with the five-year initial accreditation outcome to our school administration program,” Dean Dr. Alfred Bryant said. “I would like to thank the leadership team that made this visit a success. It speaks to the high-quality academic programs that Campbell University is known for.”

National accreditation assures the quality of professional preparation programs through a nongovernmental, nonregulatory process of self-study and peer review. This standards- and evidence-based process serves two broad aims: accountability and continuous improvement. The AAQEP model is also designed to honor local context and foster innovation and collaboration among institutions. AAQEP currently has members in 37 states and other jurisdictions with over 190 educator preparation providers participating in the accreditation system.

Campbell University is a member in good standing of the AAQEP, which is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
