December 2, 2019

PULASKI, Tenn. – The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges’ Board of Directors at its annual December meeting in Houston, Texas, granted Martin Methodist College its 10-year reaffirmation of its accreditation through 2029 without further monitoring and/or recommendations. This is a historic year as we celebrate our 150th, and this is a historic outcome.
The process of reaffirmation is a 2-3 year process as the College makes a case for compliance regarding more than 80 standards that relate to fourteen different areas including financial responsibility, adequate facilities, faculty qualifications, student outcomes, student support, governance, and institutional integrity.
Martin Methodist College President Mark LaBranche commented, “This was a team effort requiring the best of the staff, faculty, trustees, and administration. It is also a testament to the strength and quality of our institution. It is our goal to be the ‘best for our world’ as the only four-year college in southern middle Tennessee.”

Martin Methodist College, founded in 1870, is a private, liberal arts college affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Martin Methodist offers baccalaureate degrees in 39 programs of study that include English, religious studies, music and dramatic arts, mathematics and natural sciences to business, social sciences, education, criminal justice, and nursing. Still changing lives after 150 years.
