Friday, March 7 Middle States Update


Do you know what accreditation is?  


Accreditation is a voluntary process of self-regulation and peer review adopted by the educational community more than 100 years ago. Institutions of higher education have voluntarily entered into associations to evaluate each other in accord with an institution’s stated goals. 


Institutional accreditation: Most accreditation is institutional, meaning an entire college is accredited. This gives credibility to the college as a whole. This type of accreditation can be given by either a “regional accreditation agency” or a “national accreditation agency.” The U.S. is divided into six regions - each with a regional accrediting body. The one for Maryland is the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.


Specialized and programmatic accreditation: Certain specialized professional programs are accredited independently of their parent institution. There are specialized accrediting bodies for these programs—such as the International Association for Management Education and the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.

Duane Reid Featured and Quoted in Diverse Issues!


Good news this morning in a Diverse: Issues in Higher Education report from this week’s Innovations 2014 Conference just completed in Anaheim, Calif.


Duane Reid, Director of the College’s 4A (Academic Acceleration for African American Males) Program speaks passionately about the need to move more African American males through higher education.




“Access to higher education is always the discussion but not enough is focused on getting them out,” he said.


The article highlights the BCCC approach to increasing the enrollment, persistence, retention and completion of African American males in Baltimore City where, according to the U.S. Census, 23.4 percent of the population exists below the poverty line. The article points out how student GPAs and graduation rates have increased at BCCC since the launch of the program.
