Charles Drew University No Longer on Probation From Accrediting Body

The Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles received some good news from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The accrediting body announced that, based on a 24-month investigation of its finances, academic offerings, and governance, the university was no longer on probation or in danger of losing its accreditation. An infusion of funds from the University of California and a new governing board with leaders of the healthcare community in Los Angeles were cited as factors in the favorable ruling.
