Glenville State College Waiting for Reaccreditation Results

Posted: Updated:

Glenville State College is waiting to hear the results of its reaccreditation efforts.

The college hosted a delegation from the North Central Association of the Higher Learning Commission.

The commission visits colleges every 10 years to assess the quality of education offered. College president Peter Barr said having this accreditation is essential to the college's work.

"This is the professional association that legitimizes Glenville State College, Shepherd, or anybody as a degree-granting institution," Barr said.

President Barr said he expects the commission will take up Glenville's reaccreditation at a meeting this summer, and said he expects the college to be renewed for another 10 years.
