This qualitative study was conducted to explore the personal and professional experiences of family and consumer sciences educators (n = 3) who recently participated in the AAFCS accreditation process utilizing the 2010 Accreditation standards. Analysis of the transcribed semi-structured interview data yielded four overarching categories: (a) lessons learned about self and others, (b) changes made as a result of the accreditation process, (c) connections between program quality, ethical practice, and accreditation, and (d) recommendations for other programs.
