*Accreditation is the quality assurance process used in higher education. All NASPAA members are located in universities accredited by a “regional” (institutional) accreditor, which has assessed the quality of the university as a whole.
Some fields have separate “professional” accreditation of individual degree programs. In public administration, public affairs, and public policy, this accreditation is entirely voluntary. NASPAA is the professional accreditor of master’s degrees in these fields (there is not professional accreditation for undergraduate or doctoral programs in these fields).
NASPAA accredits degree programs, not
schools or universities. About 60% of NASPAA members have at least one
NASPAA-accredited master's degree program.
