Call for Nominations for NACEP Accreditation Commission

Dear NACEP Accredited Members,

NACEP has upcoming openings to serve on our Accreditation Commission. Commissioners serve an integral role in executing NACEP’s mission to advance quality college courses for high school students. The twelve-member commission is responsible for NACEP's accreditation process, reviewing Peer Review Team reports, deliberating and voting on accreditation decisions, as well as developing accreditation-related policies, training and materials.

Serving as a volunteer leader for NACEP is a great way to grow and develop as a professional. Your service will engage you in the field at the national level, provide you the opportunity to apply your experience and insights to our work as a program accreditor, and connect you with like-minded peers who are passionate about quality concurrent enrollment.

We would love to have you join us in this important work. Please consider nominating yourself or a colleague to serve as an Accreditation Commissioner.
