SACS speaks! Brenau wins 10-year affirmation as doctoral institution; Schrader elected to board

The Board of Trustees of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges reaffirmed Brenau University´s 10-year accreditation a Level V doctoral degree-granting institution, an action that followed the university´s unprecedented performance in the higher education accrediting agency´s detailed examination of Brenau academic programs and business practices.

At the annual meeting in Orlando, Fla., the SACS membership on Tuesday also named Brenau President Ed Schrader to a two-year term on the commission´s Board of Trustees.

Schrader said both actions were a testament to Brenau´s extremely strong showing in the decennial accreditation review process and praised all the members of the faculty and staff who contributed to the process.

“This is a proud moment for Brenau, its faculty and its administration,” said Schrader. “This demonstrates that Brenau University takes the accreditation process very seriously at all levels and strives to provide the highest-quality education for Brenau students.”
