Accreditation and Credentialing
The Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:
Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND)
120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2190
Chicago, Illinois 60606-6995
312.899.0040, ext. 5400
Each DPD must continually meet accreditation standards in order to maintain its accreditation. A report (self-study) must be prepared by the program and evaluated by ACEND every seven years for the program to be re-accredited; the Murray State DPD was re-accredited in 2013. In addition to the self-study submitted every seven years, yearly reports are also required to ensure the program is maintaining its quality.
