Gallaudet Accreditation Still In Jeopardy

May 3, 2007

The school for the deaf and hearing impaired has been criticized for low graduation rates, enrollment issues and lack of student progress.

University president Robert Davila says an accreditation team visiting this week noted that progress has been made but that serious concerns remain.

Several agencies are scrutinizing the school. The NCAA is investigating a complaint about a grade change for a student athlete and the Department of Education is looking into an Office of Management and Budget report last year that rated the program “ineffective.”

The school remains accredited but has until November 2008 to comply with accreditation standards.
