University’s English Language Program accreditation restored

A few weeks ago I did a post about English Language Institute at the University of South Florida having its accreditation revoked by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA), an international standards and accreditation organization for English language programs. (See the original post here.)

Thanks to a reader who pointed me in the direction of “Accreditation Restored to U. of South Florida Program” by Inside Higher Ed. the same publication that reported on this initial situation. Higher Ed now reports that the CEA has agreed to “restore recognition, conditioned on the university now showing that there was no meaningful change in control of the program, and that it still met all standards (which the university says is the case)”.

    thank god for the reader…

    • What was interesting was that the initial story came through in one of the news feeds I read. The story about the accreditation being restored, however, did not. I felt obliged to do a post on it, so that the good news could be shared, too.
