“The accreditation process is a stringent progression of educational standards,” said Dr. Nelson Soto, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “The review process is rigorous and I commend our faculty and staff on their commitment to provide the highest quality education possible to our students.”
CAAHEP Accreditation also increases career opportunities for graduates.
“Employers look for graduates who have expertise in specific content areas,” said Dr. Lisa Akers, program chair. “CAAHEP accreditation assures our graduates and their future employers that they have received sound knowledge and skills-based competencies that are ethically bound and evidence-based.”
CAAHEP Accreditation is another example of Union‘s commitment transform lives and communities.
