U.S. Department of Education Issues New Accreditation Guidance

The policies could make it harder for colleges to switch accreditors and may clash with a new Florida law, experts say.” Natalie Schwartz, Editor of Higher Ed Dive writes. Her in-depth review covers the arrival of new accreditation guidance from the US Department of Education, guidance that is intended to aid colleges and universities in Florida as they seek new accreditors while simultaneously placing some limits on the effectiveness of SB 7044, which requires all of Florida’s higher ed institutions to change accreditors in the coming years. The guidance itself can be read here, on Home Room: the Official Blog of the U.S. Department of Education.

UFF Leadership has been in touch with the US DoE about this issue, and we are thrilled to see their guidance is both forceful and direct.
