News & Updates
ACHENA recently approved a new and ambitious 3-Year Strategic Plan, which followed a retreat held to map out next steps for 2019 to 2021. Part of this Plan focuses on gaining initial recognition as an accrediting agency by the US Department of Education, a vital step on the path to further professionalize the practice of homeopathy. Additionally, the Plan mostly centers on implementing best practices of accrediting agencies as we strive to carry out our mission to assure educational excellence in our discipline.
How can you help? Initial recognition by the US Department of Education entails significant costs, and we need support from all of our stakeholders: practitioners, educators, students and lovers of homeopathy. Please contact us if our Strategic Plan 2019-2021 inspires you to offer your assistance as a Commissioner, Peer Reviewer or donor. Let’s work together to help move our profession forward!
ACHENA accredited schools have successfully demonstrated that they meet peer reviewed standards of excellence in homeopathic education and training. Homeopathic students and the larger homeopathic community will further benefit when ACHENA, as an accreditation agency, successfully demonstrates to the USDE that they have achieved nationally reviewed standards of excellence. ACHENA will continue to function as an independent, peer-monitored agency with established standards of due process and transparency. A USDE recognized, ACHENA accredited homeopathic school becomes eligible for federal student loans, student visas and other funding on behalf of the students they serve, including consumer protections under the law. For more information about nationally recognized accreditation for colleges of higher education, visit the U.S. Department of Education.
