Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 28, 2013
Splash Media U™ President Paul Slack announced today that Splash Media U has earned accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED. This action was taken at the AdvancED Accreditation Commission meeting conducted on January 24, 2013.
SACS CASI provides nationally-recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation, schools must meet SACS CASI’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school, and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
Splash Media U provides Social Media Marketing training 100 percent online. Splash Media U has over 500 social media lessons covering six courses (General Studies, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Blogging and YouTube). Splash Media U prides itself in being at the forefront of educating workers in this revolutionary new industry of social media. It is Splash Media U’s mission to become the standard by which social media marketing is taught around the globe, and this accreditation is just one step toward that goal.
“Accreditation demonstrates to our students and education partners that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing an innovative and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified social media educators,” Slack said.
Splash Media U joins the ranks of other top-tier educators across the country who have been accredited by SACS CASI. SACS CASI accreditation is recognized across state lines, which not only eases the transfer process as students move from accredited school to accredited school but also assures students that the school is meeting nationally accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice.
Dr. Mark Elgart, President/CEO of AdvancED, the parent organization of SACS CASI, stated, “SACS CASI Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school on the primary goal of creating lifelong learners. Splash Media U is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.”
