College of Communications earns reaccreditation
Good news for the College of Communications, which was awaiting word on a bid for reaccreditation . . . the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications, meeting recently in San Jose, Calif., reviewed the evaluation team report and the Accrediting Committee's recommendation and approved ASU unanimously, without comment.  This meeting was the last step in the reaccreditation process.  Only two other schools passed without comment, reflecting an extra measure of respect for ASU's self-study and the program.  The team had found ASU to be in compliance on all 12 standards. A letter from ACEJMC is expected within the next few weeks, officially notifying ASU of the vote.  Congratulations to the faculty, staff and students of the College of Communications!

Professor editing book on crime
