December 10, 2010. Washington, DC. This past December 7, the
Institute for the Psychological Sciences (IPS) received the official news
that its accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and
Schools (SACS) has been reaffirmed for a 10 year period.
Reaffirmation is a process that all colleges and universities go
through five years after their initial accreditation, and it means
that the school is in full compliance with the academic,
administrative and governance criteria that are expected from quality institutions
of higher education.
In a letter to the IPS community, IPS
president Fr Charles Sikorsky, LC, noted that the faculty, staff
and student body all “contributed significantly” throughout the process. He
extended a special thanks to Dr. Sweeney, Dr. Nordling and
the entire faculty for their “constant and tireless work in
ensuring the high quality of our programs and in preparing
the information and reports necessary for the reaffirmation process.”
“In our brief history, the Institute has experienced many signs
of God’s providential hand, and this is one more success
which confirms my belief that God has a special mission
for IPS and for each one of us.”
