|Aviation department reaccredited|
The Department of Aviation has achieved reaffirmation of accreditation of its bachelor's degree programs in commercial aviation and air traffic control by action of the Board of Trustees of the Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI).
To earn accreditation, aviation programs must satisfy the expectations of a wide range of quality standards relating to strategic management of resources, interactions of faculty and students in the educational process, and achievement of learning goals in degree programs. During the accreditation process, the University of North Dakota was visited and evaluated by academic and industry representatives with detailed knowledge of aviation education, applying accreditation standards that are widely accepted in the educational community.
This is the third affirmation of the accreditation of our degrees programs by AABI since the first programs went through initial accreditation in 1992, said Kent Lovelace, chair of UND's aviation department. It is a validation of the expertise, professionalism and concern for the students that our faculty and staff possess. It is also a validation of our curriculum and most importantly the abilities of our students which are the true measures of our success.
The Aviation Accreditation Board International (formerly Council on Aviation Accreditation or CAA) is a not-for-profit organization consisting of educational institutions, corporations, practitioners, trade organizations and members of the public-at-large. Its mission is to advance quality aviation education worldwide through accreditation and leadership. Headquartered in Auburn, Ala., AABI is the premier accrediting agency for aviation programs.
