In 2015 the state of Rhode Island authorized College Unbound to give degrees. The next step was to get accredited. A veteran in the world of accreditation, I stepped down from my role as board chair and joined the staff to help guide CU to candidacy status, a critical and necessary step toward getting full accreditation. The New England Council on Higher Education (NECHE) granted us that status this past September, a moment we are celebrating.
Congratulations to CU graduate and Director of Programs at AS220, Ashley Anjel Newmann!
