ACEJMC + CEPR
The School of Communciation and Design is proud to announce that the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC) voted 28 to 0 to make Loyola the second Jesuit institution to hold ACEJMC accreditation. Loyola is now the first Jesuit institution to hold both ACEJMC accreditation and the Certification in Education for Public Relations (CEPR). Loyola New Orleans is also the first school in the state of Louisiana to have both ACEJMC accreditation and CEPR.
ACEJMC is the agency responsible for the evaluation of professional journalism and mass communications programs in colleges and universities. The Public Relations Society of America conducts a similar review for the CEPR.
ACEJMC and CEPR require the university to provide an extensive self-study report based on the standards set by the organizations. They then send representatives from both organizations to evaluate compliance on all standards. Provided below is the ACEJMC Self-Study Report.
