Accredited Higher Institutions, 1948. Bulletin, 1949, No. 6
Wilkins, Theresa Birch
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
In 1917 the Office of Education first published a compilation of the lists of institutions accredited by national, regional, and State accrediting agencies, and has issued a revision of this publication at approximately 4-year intervals. This edition is the eighth in the series, the last previous edition having been issued in 1944. The purpose for which this bulletin is issued is to provide information to college and university officers, State department of education officials, and college and high school students about accredited higher institutions. Increasingly Federal Government agencies are using the bulletin to aid in various phases of their work. Periodic revisions are necessary to record changes that occur in the lists of accredited institutions, in the standards or criteria by which the agencies evaluate institutions, and in the agencies responsible for accrediting. Since the publication of the 1944 edition, recognized accrediting agencies have extended their activities into the fields of the technical institutes, Bible colleges, and schools and departments of public health. The lists reproduced in this bulletin were those furnished by the accrediting agencies as of October 1948. This bulletin is divided into two parts. Part I contains a compilation of universities, colleges, junior colleges, and teacher-training institutions accredited by the Association of American Universities, by the regional associations and by State agencies. Part II contains lists of professional and technical schools, some or all of the units of which are accredited by or hold membership in the appropriate organization. Accreditation of undergraduate engineering curricula is given in tabular form. Accreditation of the technical institute type of program by the Engineers' Council for Professional Development is presented as a list with accredited curricula indicated. An index of institutions and associations is also included. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
