HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY
The Strayer University was founded in April 1892 by Dr. S. Irving Strayer. Initially, the institution was given the name of Strayer’s Business College of Baltimore City. In 1904, the institution expanded its services in Washington D.C.
In 1970, the institution savored the honor of getting licensed to award Bachelor of Science Degree and its name was changed to Strayer College. In 1973, the college was accredited by Accrediting Commission of the Association of Independent Colleges and Schools as a Senior College of Business.
In 1987, the institution commenced to confer Master’s Degrees and was authorized to do so by District of Columbia Education Licensure Commission.
In the time period of 1981 to 2001, the college opened 16 campuses throughout Virginia, Maryland and District of Columbia. In 1996, the college started to offer online programs. In 1998, the Strayer College got approval to change its name to Strayer University.
Accreditation can be delineated as a process for evaluating and assuring the quality of education provided by an institution. The accreditation allows the higher education community to shoulder the responsibility of scrutinizing the quality of programs and services of the member institutions. Regional accreditation is regarded as the most important form of accreditation amongst the three types of accreditations (regional, national and programmatic). The regional accrediting organizations set high performance standards for the member institution. Not all higher. All higher education institutions are unlikely to meet such high standards of performance.
The Strayer University savors the honor of being mainly accredited by the following.
