Further to the successful virtual accreditation visit of the LAAB review team (March 2021), LDEM received the LAAB report summarizing their findings.
LDEM Chairperson Dr. Yaser Abunnasr prepared a response to the outcomes of the LAAB visit report with input from Dr. Beata Dreksler, comments from Dr. Maya Nabahani (FAFS Dean's Office) and consultation with the faculty members of the BLA program. The report was submitted to LAAB on June 11, 2021.
The BLA program's Self Evaluation Report (SER), the Visiting Team Report and the LDEM Department response report will be shared with the LAAB Board for review, and initial accreditation will be voted on at the LAAB Summer 2021 meeting in late July 2021. The results will be communicated to LDEM by the end of August 2021. If successful, the BLA program will receive initial accreditation after two and a half years of preparation to become the first program, worldwide, to receive LAAB/ASLA accreditation outside the USA.
