SUNO Child Development and Family Studies Program earns AAFCS accreditation
- Thursday, December 4, 2014
The Council for Accreditation of the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (AAFCS) has granted accreditation to the Child Development and Family Studies Department at Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO). The accreditation is granted until 2024.
The Louisiana Board of Regents mandated SUNO to establish the Child Development and Family Studies (CDFS) program in January 2006 to address workforce development and community needs in the New Orleans area, which was facing recovery challenges in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. SUNO developed a program proposal that was granted a provisional approval within one year.
