Roster of Accredited Programs Updated
The NASPAA Roster of Accredited Programs was updated January 15, 2022 to reflect actions approved by the Commission on Peer Review and Accreditation (COPRA) from September 1, 2021 to January 15, 2022. NASPAA’s membership consists of 316 member institutions that offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in public affairs and administration. Of the total number of programs eligible to participate in peer review, 207 programs at 189 schools (60% of member institutions) are accredited. On the roster, the academic year appearing immediately following the institutional name indicates the projected academic year for the next regularly scheduled review. For example, if the year indicates “2021-2022,” then the self-study would be submitted by August 15, 2021, the site visit would take place sometime between February and April of 2022, and the accreditation decision would be made by the Commission in June of 2022. This year identification does not preclude the Commission from authorizing a site evaluation prior to the designated year. The 2021-2022 Roster is effective September 1, 2021 and was revised January 15, 2022 to reflect COPRA actions from September 1, 2021 to January 15, 2022.
