OVERLAND PARK, KS — The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Associate Degree Board of Commissioners has awarded Butler County Community College reaffirmation of accreditation of its business programs.

Established in 1988, ACBSP is the only organization offering specialized business accreditation for all degree levels, from associate to baccalaureate to doctoral degree programs. ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business school at Butler County Community College meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.

"Butler County Community College has shown their commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process,” said ACBSP Director of Accreditation Steve Parscale, who will present the Certificate of Reaffirmation of Accreditation at the ACBSP Annual Conference in Chicago on June 29.

"This accreditation is evidence that Butler County Community College is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students for the past 10 years and for the next 10 years,” said Parscale.

ACBSP’s mission is to promote continuous improvement and recognize excellence in the accreditation of business education programs around the world. ACBSP is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as a specialized accreditation agency for business education. ACBSP currently has 1,227 member campuses, 186 of which are located outside of the U.S. Of those campuses, 800 have achieved accreditation and more than 345 are in candidacy for accreditation. Individual members on these campuses now exceed 10,000.

"I truly appreciate the hard work and cooperation of our faculty and staff. It is very gratifying that a global organization like ACBSP has validated what I knew to be true. BC3 is a great place to teach, learn and work," said Rosemary Keasey, Dean of BC3's Business Division.
