MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Institute of Production and Recording (IPR) is proud to announce the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) has named IPR a 2015 School of Excellence. This award recognizes ACCSC-accredited institutions for their efforts in demonstrating a high level of achievement among their students and a commitment to the accreditation process. Only 24 of ACCSC-accredited schools reached this level of acknowledgement in 2015.
"This is yet another attestation of the excellent work everyone does here every day and how IPR stands out as a shining star in the creative education industry," says Norbert Kreuzer, IPR campus director. "We are honored to be recognized by ACCSC in this way."
In order to be eligible for the School of Excellence Award, an ACCSC-accredited institution must meet the conditions of renewing accreditation without any finding of non-compliance, satisfy all requirements necessary to be in good standing with the Commission, and demonstrate that the majority of the schools' student graduation and graduate employment rates for all programs offered meet or exceed the average rates of graduation and employment among all ACCSC-accredited institutions. In 2010, IPR was recognized by ACCSC with the second highest achievable award as a School of Distinction.
"We are committed to preparing our graduates for successful careers in the workforce," says IPR Dean of Education Rebecca Buller. "We strive to provide students with the resources and support that will help them pursue their passions from the moment they enroll up through and beyond graduation."
The 2015 Schools of Excellence will be recognized by ACCSC at the 2015 Professional Development Conference Sept. 9-11, 2015, in Arlington, Va. Buller will represent IPR and receive the award on behalf of the college.
IPR is part of Globe Education Network, a Minnesota-based, family-managed network of career colleges and universities. The college provides hands-on training to those who want a behind-the-scenes education in production, recording, design and entertainment business. Visit www.ipr.edu to learn more.
