St. Pat’s in Chicago

Inside a conference room in downtown Chicago today, the national Accrediting Committee unanimously recommended reaccreditation of Elon’s School of Communications.

Meanwhile, outside, thousands of revelers were decked out in green as a parade passed by in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. In fact, as the day inside wore on, I took a walking break to the Chicago River, which for more than 40 years has been dyed an Irish green on St. Pat’s Day. Here is the scene via my iPhone.

Back to the inside action. The Accrediting Committee vote was anticipated in light of the highly positive report issued last fall by a site team that spent four days at Elon on behalf of the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC). The last step in the six-year renewal process will occur next month in Arlington, Virginia, when the Accrediting Council take the final action.
