CHEA

The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) is a United States organization of degree-granting colleges and universities. It identifies its purpose as providing national advocacy for self-regulation of academic quality through accreditation in order to certify the quality of higher education accrediting organizations, including regional, faith-based, private, career, and programmatic accrediting organizations.

The organization has approximately 3,000 academic institutions as members, and currently recognizes approximately 60 accrediting organizations. CHEA is based in Washington, DC. CHEA is a member of International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies (INQAAHE).

In 2012 CHEA launched the CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG) to advance understanding of international quality assurance and to promote high-quality higher education through international accreditation bodies worldwide. The CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG) provides a database of recognized accreditation agencies globally. It’s a non-profit, non-governmental association focused on U.S. and NON U.S. accreditation and higher education quality assurance worldwide.

Since January 25, 2018 Ukrainian-American Concordia University (UACU) has become a member of this world-renowned organization in the field of quality assurance, transparency and integrity of higher education.

Congratulations to all members of the team of employees and students of our university, our colleagues and friends.

У «СЯЙВІ» ВІДБУЛАСЯ ЗУСТРІЧ МОЛОДІЖНОЇ ПЛАТФОРМИ

У «СЯЙВІ» ВІДБУЛАСЯ ЗУСТРІЧ МОЛОДІЖНОЇ ПЛАТФОРМИ 23 грудня 2017 року в Українсько-турецькому культурному центрі «Сяйво» пройшла зустріч Молодіжної платформи. До участі в заході долучилися такі поважні гості, як, голова правління названого центру професор Володимир Сергійчук, перший Надзвичайний та Повноважний Посол України в Туреччині і співзасновник «Сяйва» Ігор Турянський, декан факультету політології та права Національного педагогічного університету імені М. П. Драгоманова професор Богдан Андрусишин і відомий український письменник Андрій Курков. Перше засідання Платформи, що розпочалося з промов іменитих гостей, було присвячено обговоренню першочергових питань на кшталт принципів функціонування Платформи, мети її діяльності, перспектив реалізації спільних проектів з іншими організаціями, а також внеску Платформи у навчання і кар’єру майбутніх молодих науковців. Після дискусії на ці теми голова Молодіжної платформи доктор політичних наук Олексій Якубін та Ярослав Телешун, його заступник і за сумісництвом голова Міжнародної асоціації студентів політичної науки, виступили перед присутніми із доповідями. Перша частина заходу завершилася фуршетом, де гостей частували турецькою пахлавою і пригощали смачним турецьким чаєм. Після фуршету учасники обговорення перейшли до другого засідання, в межах якого розглянули плани учасників Платформи на 2018 рік. Молоді вчені отримали чудову нагоду обмінятися думками зі старшими колегами, котрі дали їм чимало корисних настанов щодо можливих заходів та ефективних методів провадження діяльності, якими вони зможуть скористатися у подальшому.
