The ISPA for Academic Institutions

Institutional Accreditation

The International Sports Professionals Association (ISPA) offers accreditation of qualified sports-related professional programs for Academic Institutions. ISPA Institutional Accreditation directly addresses the need to benchmark and maintain the highest possible standards & practices at larger entities operating multiple facilities or broad curriculums. This case-by-case Accreditation serves to ensure program-wide credibility, and demonstrates to potential students that all ethical and practical practices are met or exceeded consistently. Institutional Accreditation yields many critical advantages and opportunities, such as:

>> Adding credibility to new or existing academic programs

>> Creating a competitive advantage for an Institution by becoming more desirable to potential students and receiving more favorable reviews

>> Extensive review, aid and guidance in development of new and existing programs and curriculum from the ISPA to meet accreditation standards

>> ISPA Student accreditation for all qualified and eligible students enrolled in ISPA accredited programs — An excellent credential for a new professional’s resumé. ISPA Student Accreditation includes valuable professional benefits, including a frame-quality certificate for display, a Resumé Building Tip Guide, a letter of introduction/recommendation from ISPA president Dr. John E. Mayer (when requested), and the regularly published ISPA Newsletter
