Construction management renews accreditation

May 16, 2018

The construction management program at Indiana State University has earned accreditation through the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE).

The program has maintained the stringent standards of ACCE and has proven to the board of trustees through a visiting team of its peers and industry practitioners that the program is worthy of reaccreditation.

The first Bachelor of Science degree in construction technology at State was awarded in December 1976. The program title was changed in 1980 to construction management to more accurately reflect what was happening in industry. Education and experience in both technical and managerial skills are combined through both on-campus and online delivery to prepare graduates for leadership roles in the construction industry. Construction management is increasingly being recognized as a profession on par with architecture and engineering.

The ACCE was established in 1974 to be a leading global advocate of quality construction education and to promote, support and accredit quality construction education programs around the world. The ACCE is recognized by the Council for Higher Education as the accrediting agency for four-year baccalaureate degree programs in construction, construction science, construction management and construction technology and the accrediting agency for two-year associate degree programs of a similar nature.
