Kansas. Auburn. Case Western Reserve. Oklahoma. Final four or first four? March 2006 provides us not only a time to revel in the determination, achievements, and advancements of the nation’s best collegiate basketball teams, but also an opportunity to take stock of how the accredited graduate education programs in those four universities (and 260 more) have advanced the professions of audiology and speech-language pathology.
As an ASHA member or certificate holder, it is likely that you completed your graduate education in an accredited program. Since the first accreditations were awarded in 1965 to master’s programs at the University of Kansas, Auburn University, Case Western Reserve University, and the University of Oklahoma, 264 universities and colleges have participated in the accreditation of master’s and clinical doctoral programs on their campuses over the last 40 years. The original intent of the accreditation program-to protect the interests of students, benefit the public, and improve the quality of teaching, learning, research, and professional practice-continues to be met today.
