Globe University- Eau Claire  was recognized as an Honor Roll Institution by the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).  As a result of their most recent evaluation, Globe University-Eau Claire has “demonstrated exemplary standards and a clear understanding of the ACICS Accreditation Criteria”.

Globe University Chief Operating Officer, Jeanne Hermann, will accept the award on behalf of the campus at the 100th Annual ACICS meeting held in November.

Dave Tracy, Regional Director for Globe University-Eau Claire states,” I am most proud to be associated with ACICS because the mission of our campuses is to prepare career-focused, community-minded graduates for the global workforce which coincides with the accreditation ‘outcome based’ model. Campuses are held accountable for the retention and placement of their graduates which increases completion [of coursework for degrees] and student satisfaction.”

Globe University–Eau Claire was recognized earlier this year for an outstanding Community Education Day when the community was invited to campus to participate in educational activities led by faculty,staff, and community partners. The campus was visited by ACICS in 2009. It was given high marks as a newly opened facility. The 2012 visit recognizes that Globe University-Eau Claire has maintained high standards. The future looks bright for our students and employers as we work toward exceeding our standards for the visit in 2015.

ACICS is a national accrediting body and was founded in 1912. It is the largest national accrediting organization of degree-granting institutions. ACICS accredits professional, technical, and occupational programs. ACICS is one of two national accreditors recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education. Colleges and schools accredited by ACICS are required to meet and maintain high standards of faculty qualifications, student retention, and student placement. (ACICS, 2012)
