ACCE PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT
Howdy ACCE Friends
As part of our continued communication effort, we are highlighting specific accredited programs within the ACCE system. These are randomly selected schools, professional development, and workforce programs. Hopefully, this will help the ACCE community have an even better appreciation of the efforts made for accreditation, reaccreditation, and certification.
Please note that most of the content for this Highlight is provided by the Program's website and the latest ACCE Visiting Team Report for the Program.
