LSUHSC New Orleans is accredited by SACSCOC (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges). SACSCOC is a regional body for accreditation of degree-granting, higher education institutions in the 11 Southern states. The LSUHSC New Orleans SACSCOC Accreditation Reaffirmation visit is March 24-26, 2015.

  • SACSCOC accreditation is necessary for accreditation by each of the individual professional accrediting bodies of all of the programs at LSUHSC New Orleans (except Graduate Studies), and is necessary to obtain Federal Student Loans.

A required component of the accreditation process is to develop a 10 year Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) focused on enhancing student education and learning. The QEP for LSUHSC New Orleans will concentrate on Interprofessional Education.

  • Interprofessional Education (IPE) is defined as “when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.”
