Minerva Finds Partner for Accreditation

July 24, 2013

The Minerva Project has found a partner in accreditation. Minerva is a much-publicized venture that aims to educate top undergraduates from around the world -- online -- moving the cohorts of students around the world for residencies in various cities. One of Minerva's challenges has been lack of accreditation. Ben Nelson, the founder, told Inside Higher Ed in April that Minerva would deal with this by using "various loopholes" in accreditation rules, such as aligning itself with an accredited institution. On Tuesday, such a partnership was announced -- with the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences. The partnership still must be approved by Keck's accreditor, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
