The accreditation reflects the longest period to be extended to a degree-granting institution

Following site visits and a detailed, bicoastal institutional review, the commission commended Scripps Research for its clear vision, its widespread faculty involvement in all aspects of the graduate program, and its commitment to increasing diversity across the organization. Also lauded was the graduate school’s data-driven approach to understanding and adapting to student needs.

“Our successful doctoral program reaccreditation reflects brightly on the entire Scripps Research community. While these accolades are well deserved, our efforts to evolve and refine our graduate program are an ongoing commitment. I look forward to continued innovations that will ensure the Skaggs Graduate School of Chemical and Biological Sciences remains a leader in graduate education.”
