AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Auburn University has received confirmation from the Aviation Accreditation Board International, or AABI, that its flight education and aviation management programs have been reaffirmed for accreditation.
“Auburn University has a rich history in aviation education,” Auburn University Provost Timothy Boosinger said. “We look forward to continuing to provide a high quality aviation education experience to help prepare future leaders in the industry.”
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges this week reaffirmed Auburn University’s accreditation.
The approval was announced Tuesday during the SACS Commission on Colleges annual winter meeting in Atlanta.
Following usual procedures for decennial reviews, the Commission on Colleges reached its reaffirmation decision after teams of educators from peer institutions reviewed Auburn’s compliance with the principles of accreditation. Preliminary review was conducted by an off-site team in October 2012, and the second team visited in March to confirm Auburn’s continued compliance with accreditation standards and federal requirements and the university’s plans for enhancing student learning in the future.
AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine has retained full accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education. The decision was made at the council’s Oct. 7-9 meeting at AVMA headquarters in Schaumburg, Ill.
The American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education is recognized as the accrediting body for schools and programs that offer the professional doctor of veterinary medicine degree. To maintain accreditation, veterinary colleges must provide an extensive self-evaluation and arrange for a site visit at intervals of not more than seven years.
AUBURN – The Colleges of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University have achieved accreditation from the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International. The association is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes the humane treatment of animals in science through voluntary accreditation and assessment programs.
“AAALAC International accreditation is considered the gold standard in independently evaluating animal programs across the globe,” said John Mason, Auburn University vice president for research. “The animal use programs in the two colleges were commended for providing quality and responsible care of laboratory and research animals reviewed during a comprehensive and rigorous week-long site visit by six independent program experts from across the United States.”
