Canada’s SFU gets US accreditation

Simon Fraser University, of British Columbia, became the third Canadian university to gain accreditation by a U.S. accreditor-and the first research university to gain such accreditation. After a seven-year process, SFU was accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. According to Insider Higher Ed, two other Canadian universities, Athabasca University and Capilano University, also have been accredited by American accreditors.
