ACFEF Grants Accreditation to 53 Culinary Programs in United States, Philippines and Peru

Fifty-three culinary programs in 23 educational institutions across the United States and in the Philippines and Peru received programmatic accreditation by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation (ACFEF) Accrediting Commission in July. 

Initial ACFEF programmatic accreditation was granted to 15 culinary programs and 38 accreditations for culinary programs were renewed. Upon renewal, 18 of the programs were recognized by the ACFEF Accrediting Commission as exemplary, symbolizing the highest in educational standards. The award is presented to programs that have proven consistent compliance with all ACFEFAC accreditation requirements in the last two site visit reports, along with excellent management of the program. 

“The Accrediting Commission evaluates faculty, curriculum, facilities, student services and administrative capability to ensure that the programs promote successful student outcomes,” says Rob Hudson, CEC, CCE, AAC, ACFEF Accrediting Commission chair. “We are proud to recognize these programs as ACFEF accredited.”
