    I received the following e-mail this morning. I wonder why they split the law school from the University. I notice that they also added a Doctor of Education.

    To: All Current Students

    On June 7, 2008 the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) voted to grant re-accreditation to The Taft University System until 2013. This action was taken after consideration of an extensive self-study prepared by the University and the report of a site visitation team that included representatives of both regionally and American Bar Association accredited schools. The five year re-accreditation period is the maximum permissible under DETC standards.

    Michael P. Lambert, Executive Director of DETC, stated "The five-year re-accreditation of The Taft University System is a milestone event for both Taft and DETC, since it represents a public affirmation of a distinguished educational institution for the second time in five years. DETC is extremely proud to be affiliated with the staff and faculty of Taft and we commend them on this outstanding achievement. Taft represents a unique, highly accessible, convenient and affordable learning opportunity for students around the world, and DETC re-accreditation is their assurance of the highest academic quality and business ethics. "

    Both William Howard Taft University and Taft Law School are members of The Taft University System.

    Concurrently, the Commission also approved the University to offer a Doctor of Education Program. Enrollment in this program is expected to begin in October.

    I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all Taft staff and faculty members who contributed to this process over the past year.

    I emailed them last week about their EdD and recieved a reply a couple days ago stating that they were not accepting doctorate degree applications at this time.
