Dr. Mitcham Receives External Funding from CACREP to Support Accreditation
Dr. Michelle Mitcham was successful in acquiring $5000 over the course of two academic years to support our accreditation application process. She received $2500 in 2018 and another $2500 this fall. Pictured above is Dr. Mitcham presenting the funding for us to move forward. The CACREP addendum report will be submitted December 20th and our onsite review will be during the Fall 2020 semester. We will receive an additional $4000 in the spring to prepare for the site visit.

We are thankful for Dr. Mitcham's diligence in assisting us with this effort.
