BUIES CREEK - Following its required decennial review, Campbell University’s accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has been reaffirmed.

The action was taken at SACSCOC’s annual meeting in Orlando, Fla., in December, following a thorough examination of the academic programs and complete operations of the University.

“Campbell, with all its constituents, can be justly proud of this tremendous accomplishment,” University President Dr. Jerry Wallace said. “It is a resounding affirmation of the University’s quality and strength, as assessed by peers across the spectrum of higher education.”

According to Wallace, Campbell did very well on the review to the extent that no additional follow-up was requested.

Campbell is considered a Level V university in that it offers three doctoral degrees. A fourth doctorate is being shaped as the University’s planning continues for a School of Osteopathic Medicine.

The SACSCOC is the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the South. It serves as the common denominator of shared values and practices for institutions in degree-granting institutions in 11 southeastern states.

While many of the University’s programs also hold specialized accreditations in their particular fields, the most widely recognized affirmation continues to be that of the SACSCOC.
