Accreditation Standards

Questioner: Anonymous

Posted to: David S. Szymanski, UNF President

Over the recent past statements (including responses here) by the current President and senior members of the UNF administration have conveyed the view that accreditation and accreditation standards are exceptional rewards and crowning achievements to be aspired to and sought after. This contrasts with the view that accreditation and accreditation standards are baseline credentials and minimum standards to be expected, consistently maintained, and always surpassed as a matter of course. Can the new president describe his view of accreditation and accreditation standards.

Response from the Floor by President Szymanski

We have gone through a big process in regards to accreditation. Accreditation standards allow us to determine if we are meeting the targets of where we are supposed to be, and we respect that process. I agree with the statement that we should be exceeding those standards.
