Gannon University’s English as a Second Language Program has reached a new level. It has received accreditation from the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation, which is considered the gold standard for such programs. The accreditation is for five years.
CEA promotes excellence in the field of English language teaching and administration and protects the interests of students through the accreditation of English language programs and institutions worldwide. The accreditation process measured 44 different components of the program to assure that it met specific quality standards and stimulates improvement through ongoing program assessment.
“CEA is one of the gold standards in ESL accreditation, whose recognition will meet the standards of sponsoring entities and government agencies,” said Thomas Hassett, associate vice president of Global Enrollment and Engagement at Gannon. “It is also a testimony to the quality of the program and the dedication of the staff.”
The Gannon University Office of English Language and Global Training ESL Program is accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation for the period of August 2019 through August 2024 and agrees to uphold the CEA Standards for English Language Programs and Institutions. CEA is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency for English language programs and institutions in the U.S. For further information about this accreditation, please contact CEA, 1001 N.
