COUNCIL FOR HIGHER EDUCATION ACCREDITATION
PUBLIC STATEMENT OF CHEA RECOGNITION
October 6, 2022
Statement to be used by Accrediting Organizations for Recognition
At its meeting on October 3, 2022, the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) Board of Directors reviewed the recommendation of the CHEA Committee on Recognition regarding the recognition application submitted by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE). The Board of Directors accepted the Committee recommendation and recognized ACCE for the following recognized scope of accreditation:
Master’s, baccalaureate, and associate degree programs in construction, construction science, construction management and construction technology located in North America and Australia. (2017)
NEWS: CHEA approves recognition of ACCE for seven years (December, 2029)
"One of the first objectives I was challenged with when I started as President of ACCE in May 2019 was to obtain our re-recognition as an accrediting body from the Council of Higher Education and Accreditation, also known as CHEA. On October 3rd, 2022, I attended the CHEA Board meeting in Washington DC and am happy to announce that we were awarded continuing CHEA recognition for a term of seven years (through December 31, 2029), with an Interim Report due at the midpoint of the recognition term (April 1, 2026).
This recognition is critical to ACCE's commitment to being the leading accreditation body for College and University Degreed Construction Education Programs. Congratulations to the ACCE Board of Trustees and everyone who has been instrumental in this effort. Mainly, I wish to thank Dr. John Schaufelberger for his diligent efforts in assisting us with this effort."
