The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) recently announced the 10-year reaffirmation of accreditation for the Morgan State University School of Community Health and Policy’s Nutritional Science Program. The Council voted during its April 2013 meeting to continue full accreditation, as the program has met the standards and requirements set by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics.
“Full accreditation speaks to our commitment to quality education, continued improvement of our program and accountability to the public,” said Dr. Ivis Forrestor, Director of the Nutritional Science Program.
The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) initially accredited the Nutritional Sciences Program in 2002. Each accreditation is good for 10 years. ACEND is an autonomous accrediting agency for education programs preparing students to begin careers as registered dietitians or dietetic technicians, registered.
