DENVER, July 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 14, 2013 the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) voted to grant re-accreditation to William Howard Taft University until June 2018. This action was taken after consideration of an extensive self-study prepared by the institution and a comprehensive report prepared by a site visitation team that included representatives of regionally accredited schools. The five year re-accreditation period is the maximum permissible under DETC standards.
David L. Boyd, Chancellor of The Taft University System and a Trustee of the Orange County Board of Education, acknowledged the efforts of Taft's administration, faculty and staff in achieving this recognition. Boyd commented, "All worked extremely hard over a long period of time to develop a self-study report that demonstrated that the University is fulfilling its stated mission. We're pleased that the members of the visitation team and members of the DETC Commission recognized our commitment to providing quality educational programs and service to students."
Dr. Leah K. Matthews, Executive Director of DETC, stated, "In receiving renewal of accreditation from DETC, Taft has demonstrated its continuing commitment to educational standards and ethical business practices that assure quality, accountability, and meaningful opportunities for students to engage fully in higher learning. The DETC is very pleased to acknowledge the fine work of this institution and the extraordinary contribution it makes to higher education, reflecting a longstanding commitment to best practices in teaching and learning in distance education."
