Athletic Training Program Receives National Re-Accreditation


Contributed by Paul Geisler

The bachelor of science degree program in athletic training in the (newly renamed) Department of Exercise Science & Athletic Training has received a 10 year re-accreditation award from the national accrediting body, the Commission on Accreditation for Athletic Training Education, or the CAATE. This recognition secures the program's status until 2028-29, and allows them to now complete their transition to the Master's degree in order to be in compliance with new professional education requirements of the CAATE (entry-level degree will be at the master's level, effective by 2023). Thanks to all administrators, studenets, preceptors and students for helping with the 1.5 year self-study process and sustained excellence.
