KNOXVILLE — For most students and alumni, Johnson’s accreditation reaffirmation in December went by with little fanfare, or even acknowledgement. But for administrators, faculty and staff, the reaffirmation was the culmination of year’s of work.
Johnson received its 10 year reaffirmation of accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges Dec. 4, 2016.
The Vice President for Academic Affairs/Provost, Tommy Smith said, “We invest a lot of time into this [two year process] because it’s worth it—Worth it for the students and University.”
Being accredited places the University in a class of high quality that reflects the best practices in education.
