Business, counseling programs earn accreditation

Programs in Troy University’s Sorrell College of Business and College of Education recently received accreditation.

The Sorrell College of Business has been accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), bringing all of the University’s business programs under a single accreditation for the first time.

Previously, TROY’s business programs on the Troy, Montgomery and Dothan campuses were separately accredited by the organization. The College currently serves more than 12,000 students and offers programs in 15 states and seven foreign countries.

“All business programs at all sites are now fully ACBSP accredited,” said Dr. Don Hines, dean of the Sorrell College of Business. “This is beneficial to our students because it says that our programs have been determined to meet the high standards of ACBSP, which is a widely recognized and highly respected agency within the realm of business education.”

Troy University’s counseling programs on four campuses in Alabama and five teaching sites in Florida have received specialized accreditation from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP).

CACREP has granted initial accreditation for the TROY programs on the Dothan Campus and the mental health counseling program at sites in Fort Walton Beach, Orlando, Panama City, Pensacola and Tampa. These programs now join the University’s counseling programs on the Troy, Phenix City and Montgomery campuses that were previously granted accreditation by the Council.

“Specialized accreditation is the academic seal of approval for our programs, and I am proud of the hard work that went into this process,” said Dr. Lance Tatum, dean of the College of Education. “All of our counseling faculty and the College’s leadership team are to be commended for their work on this project.”
