2017 Accreditation Standards Open For Comment

The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND®) is pleased to announce the release of the DRAFT 2017 Accreditation Standards for public comment. The draft 2017 Standards are the result of a planned five-year review cycle of the current 2012 Accreditation Standards to ensure compliance with USDE regulations. Please note that the 2017 standards are different from the future education model associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree standards that will be released for public comment later this year.

The draft standards, the February Standards Update, and a Webinar, which provides an overview of the 2017 Standards development process and key changes from the 2012 Standards, are posted on the ACEND standards committee webpage. We value all stakeholder input and encourage you to provide input on the 2017 Standards at the following survey link.

If you have questions, please write or call or call 312-899-4872.
