Co-curriculum Accreditation: Lessons Learned #2

September 22, 2021
3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. ET

Hosted by the Co-Curricular Community

The first co-curriculum webinar about co-curricular accreditation in Sept 2020 was so popular we decided to host another! Three different speakers will share experiences from recent accreditation site visits, with a focus on the co-curricular elements of their programs. Since addition of co-curricular elements of PharmD programs happened with implementation of ACPE Standards 2016, some schools have yet to experience this review and have their co-curricular programs critiqued. Standard 4 and some elements of Standard 3 can be supported by student involvement in co-curricular activities. Speakers will describe their co-curricular programs, and their experience with accreditation site visits under Standards 2016.


  1. Describe co-curricular programs of a variety of institutions.
  2. Explain the accreditation review experience with a focus on co-curriculum.
  3. Discuss lessons learned about this process from a variety of institutions.
  4. Implement changes to your co-curricular program to better meet accreditation expectations.
