TROY - Two of Troy University's College of Education programs have received national accreditation, signifying the University's commitment to maintaining and improving its education programs.

The Undergraduate Rehabilitation Education Program has been accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) for the first time, and the Graduate Rehabilitation Counselor Education Program's accreditation was reaffirmed.

"Students can be assured that faculty members and leadership of the Rehabilitation program are committed to providing a quality program that will continue to be improved through regular monitoring and evaluation," said Dr. Kathryn Hildebrand, Dean of the College of Education.

"Accreditation of the program provides evidence of the program's commitment to maintaining a clear program mission, meaningful objectives, and a curriculum that prepares students to work as professionals in the field of disability and rehabilitation," she said.

CORE is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the accrediting body for graduate and undergraduate rehabilitation programs.
