CAA Accreditation Public Meeting
The Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) has been closely monitoring conditions across the country related to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). They are aware that many universities have decided to cease face-to-face activities on campus for the next several weeks. In light of these activities, the fact that many universities and employers are restricting travel, and the recommendations to limit social interactions and travel at this time, the CAA has decided to postpone the scheduled reaccreditation site visit on: 3/26-3/27/2020, to the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, graduate SLP and AUD programs.
The CAA is committed to rescheduling this visit as soon as possible.
