    Welcome to the Morehouse School of Medicine
    Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) website.


    This site has been developed to support SACS in the evaluation of MSM for reaffirmation of accreditation and in preparation for the off-site evaluation in Fall 2010 and campus site visit in Spring 2011.

    This SACS website is intended to share information about our preparations for reaffirmation of accreditation, making documents available for review and keeping the MSM community abreast of the progress of this important process. In the coming months, faculty, administrators, staff and students will be asked for their cooperation and assistance in the preparation of the documentation that will demonstrate MSMs compliance with SACS requirements and we encourage you to be an active participant in this process.

    The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is the recognized regional accrediting body in the eleven U.S. Southern states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia) for those institutions of higher education that award associate, baccalaureate, master's or doctoral degrees. Reaffirmation of accreditation takes place every ten years.
