FAMU gets compliment from accreditor



Famulogo Officials from the accrediting team visiting FAMU this week liked what they saw, offering FAMU supporters hope that the university's probationary status may be short-lived.

In a press release issued by FAMU this afternoon, Robert Gratz, who chairs the on-site monitoring committee for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, credited FAMU with taking a broad range of corrective action and assembling a strong management team.

"In the three months since receipt of the notification, FAMU has made remarkable progress," he said. "Now the new system only needs time to show its effectiveness." SACS will review FAMU's status in December.
