2021 Accreditation Action Statement

COPRA is pleased to release its 2021 Accreditation Action Statement, the complete list of actions taken at its June 2021 meeting.

The 2021 Action Statement includes the following four programs that were accredited for the first time:

  • Master of Public Administration at Beijing Normal University (China)
  • Master of Public Administration at Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (Qatar)
  • Master of Public Administration at North Carolina Central University (USA)
  • Master of Public Administration at University of Central Oklahoma (USA)

The 2021 Action Statement is continued evidence of COPRA and the Executive Council’s commitment to transparency and accountability in the accreditation review. These values already define the accreditation process, and COPRA continues to seek to better meet the accountability needs of its community - accredited programs and their stakeholders - as it balances student, faculty, and employer desires to know about program and student outcomes, with the need for programmatic growth, due process, and privacy.

Please join us in congratulating all newly accredited and reaccredited programs!

Stay tuned for the September 1 release of the 2021-2022 Roster of Accredited Programs.
