Construction Management Program Earns ACCE Re-accreditation
The Board of Trustees of the American Council for Construction Education announces the renewal of accreditation of the Construction Management Program at Eastern Kentucky University. The Program has maintained the stringent standards of ACCE, and has proven to the Board, through a visiting team of its peers and industry practitioners, that the program is worthy of reaccreditation.
EKU’s Construction Management program is well recognized as a leader in producing highly-qualified industry talent. And now with its newly received re-accreditation from the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE), it is one of only two such baccalaureate programs in the commonwealth. ACCE accreditation helps students and employers identify quality programs and identify those with the potential for making lasting industry contributions.
Initially formed as a Bachelor of Science in Construction Technology in 1977, the program has grown into a robust Construction Management program with complimentary minors, certificates, and a fully online Master’s degree.
The four-year program first earned ACCE accreditation in 1993, and has now been reaccredited by ACCE. Industry-specific accreditation reflects positively on the hard work and dedication of EKU’s faculty. Department Chair Dr. Tim Ross commented, “For nearly 40 years, the Construction Management program has prepared students to occupy leadership positions in the construction industry. We are producing some of the best and brightest graduates that are making a significant impact on construction in the 21st century.”
The American Council for Construction Education was established in 1974 to be a leading global advocate of quality construction education, and to promote, support, and accredit quality construction education programs around the world. ACCE is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the accrediting agency for four-year baccalaureate degree programs in Construction, Construction Science, Construction Management and Construction Technology, and the accrediting agency for two-year associate degree programs of a similar nature.
