The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), Inc. has been following recent reports regarding the planned merger between Southern Polytechnic State University (GA) and Kennesaw State University (GA). Both institutions are part of the University System of Georgia.
Southern Polytechnic offers a NAAB-accredited B. Arch. degree, which is scheduled for its next NAAB review in 2014.
The effect of the planned merger on the NAAB-accredited program has not yet been determined.
The NAAB will continue to monitor the issue.
In the meantime, parents and students are advised to address their concerns to the leadership of the University System of Georgia, Southern Polytechnic, and Kennesaw State University.
