Public Notice: Comprehensive Review of Non-Degree-Granting Standards

August 22, 2017

In August 2015, NASD began a multi-year review of its standards and guidelines. The first phase of the review focused on the standards of graduate studies in dance. The second phase focused on the standards for undergraduate studies in dance. This phase will focus on the standards for non-degree-granting studies in dance.

The first comment period for non-degree-granting standards extends from August 22 to October 9, 2017. We invite all representatives of member institutions, constituencies, dance professionals, deans, accreditors, students, interested parties, and the general public to engage in this review. The comments received in this comment period will influence any proposals for changes to the standards.

A hearing on the non-degree-granting standards will be held on Friday, September 15 from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. at the NASD 2017 Annual Meeting in Tucson, Arizona. No action to revise the non-degree-granting standards will be taken at the 2017 Annual Meeting.
