Abstract

In the Fall of 2001, East Carolina University received notice that their NAIT Accreditation for the Industrial Technology programs was in jeopardy. Of the sixty-two accreditation standards, we had received a combined total of seventeen partial and non- compliant ratings from the NAIT Board of Accreditation. Our Dean was very emphatic regarding his embarrassment and our disgrace as a department.
