ULM School of Construction Management receives reaccreditation

The University of Louisiana at Monroe’s School of Construction Management recently received reaccreditation from the American Council for Construction Education. The ACCE provides accreditation standards for schools around the country.
Reaccreditation was awarded following a site visit from the ACCE and industry practitioners. Dr. Keith Parker, associate professor and director of the School of Construction, headed the reaccreditation effort.

“We are very excited about the results of our accreditation visit,” Parker said. “As the first program to receive accreditation in the country over 30 years ago, it is very meaningful for us to receive the positive results of this most recent accreditation review.”

The school is housed in the College of Business Administration and is tasked with preparing students for careers in the construction industry.

“The School of Construction Management has a long history of success, producing over 1,500 alumni who have become leaders in the Construction industry,” said Dr. Ronald Berry, dean of the CBA. “Our faculty continues the tradition of providing an outstanding education that meets the highest expectations of quality, as evidenced by the success of the program reaccreditation efforts.”

“Dr. Parker and the construction faculty are to be commended for their focus on excellence and continuous improvement,” he added.
