CHEA Recognized

At its meeting held in January 2022, the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) Board of Directors reviewed the recommendation of the CHEA Committee on Recognition and voted to formally recognize ACPHA as an accreditor of hospitality administration/management programs in regionally and nationally accredited institutions of higher education. This grant covers both associates and bachelor’s degree programs in the United States and Internationally.

The recognition means ACPHA’s processes and procedures have meet the requirements to be included among the accrediting agencies of specialized/programmatic agencies. Since ACPHA has met the rigorous expectations established by CHEA for Accrediting Agencies all of the ACPHA accredited programs are also part of this quality control and thus elevated by the value of their program’s ACPHA Accreditation Status. Over seventy programs, both domestic and international, are currently accredited by ACPHA.

Please join us in celebrating this major accomplishment!
