APUS’ Emergency and Disaster Management Program Receives Foundation of Higher Education Specialty Accreditation
Institutions receive accreditation from either a regional or national accrediting body. Generally, it’s the institution that receives accreditation which covers all the programs offered by that institution at the time of the accrediting visit. There are other accrediting bodies that accredit individual programs only, and that form of accreditation is referred to as specialty accreditation. Recently, we received notice that our Emergency and Disaster Management program had received specialty accreditation from the Foundation of Higher Education.
