NACEP re-accreditation touts quality of Syracuse University Project Advance
Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA) has been re-accredited by NACEP, the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships. Accreditation is awarded after a comprehensive peer review ensures a program meets or exceeds NACEP’s 17 national standards for program quality in the areas of curriculum, faculty, students, assessment and program evaluation.
“Through NACEP’s rigorous accreditation peer-review process, Syracuse University has once again demonstrated that it integrates high quality, standards-based practices across its concurrent enrollment program,” says NACEP President Lynn Burbank. “As one of the initial cohort of programs to earn NACEP accreditation in 2004, we are pleased to award continued accreditation to Syracuse University Project Advance. Project Advance is one of the first four programs to earn continued accreditation from NACEP, and one of only 66 programs nationwide accredited by NACEP.”
NACEP is a professional organization for high school and college partnerships offering college courses in high schools. Now in its second decade, it has emerged as the national forum for concurrent enrollment. It supports members by providing standards of excellence, opportunities to network and share best practices, and access to information about research and national trends in dual and concurrent enrollment.
“Syracuse University Project Advance helped found NACEP because we believe strong standards indicate quality and excellence in student learning, teacher development and program evaluation,” says Jerry Edmonds, director of SUPA. “As one of the nation’s leading concurrent enrollment programs, SUPA continually strives not only to meet, but to exceed the NACEP standards. We wholeheartedly support NACEP’s efforts to ensure quality and accountability for concurrent enrollment programs across the nation.”
