FAMU Finally Gets Some Good News Regarding Accreditation

Last month JBHE reported that the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools decided to keep Florida A&M University on accreditation probation for at least another six months. New FAMU president James Ammons called the accreditation decision “very disappointing.”

But this month he received some better news. The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education took FAMU’s College of Pharmacy off probation and renewed its accreditation through 2010. The council had placed the college on probation in 2007 due to concerns about curriculum, staffing levels, and quality of teaching facilities.
