Public Comment Invited
A directory of centers and programs accredited by ACPE is found in the Directory section of the website, arranged geographically by region. After the name of each center is listed the year when the center is scheduled for its next accreditation review. Comments on the program or institution's qualifications and/or compliance with ACPE standards are invited. These comments may be sent either to the chair of the national Accreditation Commission, to the Executive or Associate Director, or to the accreditation chair for the region in which the center is located. Written comments are especially welcome early in the year the center is scheduled for review. Please visit the Accreditation page for a complete roster of commission members.
