Yuin University goes ballistic

Discussion in 'Accreditation Discussions (RA, DETC, state approva' started by John Bear, Sep 4, 2005.

    Today I received a "To Whom It May Concern" packet of stuff sent out by Yuin University, California. The cover page says, in big letters: WHEREAS THE BUREAU FOR PRIVATE POSTSECONDARY AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IS FULL OF DECEIT, ITS ON-SITE INSPECTION IS MEANINGLESS."

    The cover letter is entitled, "RE: THE EVIL PATTERN OF CPPVE AND THE BTTVE'S AXIS OF EVIL."

    They claim, among much else, that the California Bureau intentionally destroyed the on-site visit report, thereby keeping the school 'in limbo' since 1999; that they submitted over 900 pages of documentation which have been ignored; that on-site visits have been capriciously postponed (except the one time that they postponed it earlier this year because they were busy), and so on.

    They say they "are doing education which is holy matter and be successful only through mutual cooperation... The owners of schools are mostly invested millions dollars... Education business is not kind of money making business."

    I believe Yuin issues in California and Hawaii have been discussed here, but without a functioning search engine . . .

    This is the only thread I could find.

    I note that their use of language hasn't changed much.

    Perhaps acupuncture causes testiness or maybe applying/teaching acupuncture causes testiness?

    Perhaps one could stick a needle into the civility chakra.

    While I'm inclined to think that acupuncture is little more than another application of the placebo effect, I should note that Yuin isn't approved to offer acupuncture degrees (which they apparently do anyway in defiance of the state).


    From the photograph on their website, it looks like Yuin University physically consists of a second floor office suite in a small retail building in Compton CA. In addition to acupuncture, Yuin also teaches business administration and Christian theology up to the doctoral level.


    They aren't accredited by ACAOM. The Accrediting Council for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) is a US Dept. of Education recognized accreditor. At the current time ACAOM is only recognized to accredit up to the masters level, but acupuncturists desperately want to be doctors like other health professionals. So ACAOM is lobbying the USDoEd and I've heard that like DETC and ACICS, they have doctoral pilots going. Haven't verified that, though.

    I do know that a couple of ACAOM schools in California appear on WASC's upcoming site visit list, so apparently some of them are seeking to become RA.

    "The side of right will ultimately win out, but not until it first successfully defends itself against the venomous serpents with which it has been cast down into the pit of regulatory infamy; not before it must scale the pit's slippery walls out of the darkness of the abyss of evil."

    That's a thing of beauty. Mr. Yu got his poetic chi energies really flowing with that one.

    Bill made a funny, and Bear too.

    Hee hee.

    Of course, from my Confucian perspective, it's overripe bullroar, but hey.
    To each his own snakepit.
    Yuin or you out?

    I had not known, until being alerted by an Email pal, that Yuin claimed (or claims) accreditation from the dreadful "APICS" agency.

    So, intriguingly, did the now-DETC-accredited Columbia Southern University.
