Higher education leaders obviously need to have a discussion on “regular and substantive” interaction in higher
education and the role of accreditation in distance and online education, thus the creation of this one-day symposium
in Dallas, Texas, on Friday, April 15th. This event will bring together a cross-section of educators to discuss the
high-trending topic of accreditation and distance learning programs. Pivotal is dialogue with leadership from regional
and national accreditors, college accreditation liaisons, distance education administrators and other stakeholders
involved in distance and online education.
