B OB S HILLINGLAW 35TH SEASON • NORTH CAROLINA ‘74

University of Delaware head lacrosse coach Bob Shillinglaw, one of the nation's most respected and successful coaches, will begin his 35th season as head coach of the Blue Hen men's lacrosse program and his 38th season of college coaching overall in 2013. He leads a Blue Hen program that ranks among the nation's best in NCAA Division I. Over the last eight seasons, the Blue Hens have posted a cumulative record of 77-57 (.583), won 10 or more games five times, captured four Colonial Athletic Association regular season and tournament titles, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament four times. The highlight came during the 2007 season when the Hens knocked off Virginia and UMBC in the first two round of the NCAA Tournament to advance to the NCAA Final Four for the first time in school history. Shillinglaw owns a career record of 281-256 (.523) at Delaware that includes 15 conference titles, including seven in the East Coast Conference, three in the North Atlantic Conference titles, a 1999 America East Conference title, and four CAA titles in 2005 (regular season), 2007, 2010, and 2011. He has led the Blue Hens to NCAA Tournament appearances in 1984, 1999, 2005, 2007, 2010, and 2011. He reached a milestone achieved by just nine other coaches in the history of the game in 2012 when he captured his 300th career victory during the Blue Hens' season-opening 19-6 win over Detroit Mercy on Feb. 4 in Delaware Stadium. He holds the NCAA all-time, all-divisions record for most career coaching appearances with 578, breaking the record of 510 set by Jack Emmer at Cortland State, Washington & Lee, and Army from 1970 until 2005. Shillinglaw, whose overall career coaching record stands at 305-273 (.528), will enter the 2013 season ranked seventh among all active men's college coaches for wins, including a No. 4 ranking among NCAA Division I mentors, trailing only Dom Starsia of Virginia (341), John Danowski of Duke (314), and Bill Tierney of Denver (308). He is one of just eighth coaches in NCAA history to win 250 games or more at one school, reaching the mark with a win over Saint Joseph's in the 2009 season opener. He led the Blue Hens to their finest season in school history in 2007. The Blue Hens went 13-6 overall, captured the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament title, and advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the first time in school history. Delaware stormed past defending national champion and No. 2 seed Virginia by a 148 score in the first round, defeated No. 13 ranked UMBC 10-6 in the quarterfinals at Navy, and trailed eventual national champion Johns Hopkins 3-2 late in the third quarter before falling to the Blue Jays 8-3 in the national semifinals before a record crowd of 52,004 fans at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. Delaware was ranked No. 15 in the final USILA poll - based on the regular season - for the second straight year. The recently completed 2010 and 2011 season also saw the Blue Hens capture the CAA Tournament title and advance to the NCAA Tournament, each time resulting in tough one-goal losses to Atlantic Coast Conference powers. It marked the first time in school history that Delaware

He was promoted to the position of associate head coach on Dec. 6, 2005 and will begin his eighth season in that role this season. "Greg has given tremendous contributions to the Delaware men's lacrosse program," said Shillinglaw. "He coaches with tremendous passion and enthusiasm and has great rapport with the players. He has been

a tremendous asset as a recruiter along with all aspects of the program, especially coaching the defensive end of the field. His contributions will continue to assist our goal of being one of the top teams in Division I." Carroll, who serves as Delaware's defensive coordinator, has played a key role in helping the Blue Hens rank among the nation's top programs during his tenure. Delaware has captured three Colonial Athletic Association Tournament titles in the last six years and advanced to the NCAA Tournament four times in the last eighth campaigns. During his 13 years as an assistant, the Blue Hens have recorded 10 or more wins seven times. He helped guide the Blue Hens to the finest season in school history in 2007. The Blue Hens went 136 overall, captured the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament title, and advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the first time in school history. Delaware stormed past defending national champion and No. 2 seed Virginia by a 14-8 score in the first round, defeated No. 13 ranked UMBC 10-6 in the quarterfinals at Navy, and trailed eventual national champion Johns Hopkins 3-2 late in the third quarter before falling to the Blue Jays 8-3 in the national semifinals before a record crowd of 52,004 fans at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. The Blue Hens put together back-to-back memorable seasons in 2010-11, rallying late in the season to capture the CAA Tournament title and advancing to the NCAA Tournament where they dropped one-goal decisions to nationally-ranked Atlantic Coast Conference teams each year. In 2011, Delaware posted a record of 11-7, capturing the CAA Tournament title with a pair of road playoff wins over No. 8 Hofstra (10-9) in the semifinals and over No. 19 Massachusetts (9-7) in the title game. The Blue Hens drew defending national champion and No. 6 ranked Duke in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and gave the Blue Devils all they could handle before a comeback fell just short in a 1514 setback in Durham, N.C. The Hens were ranked No. 14 in the final USILA regular season poll. During the 2010 campaign, Delaware won its final three regular season games to earn a spot in the CAA Tournament and proceeded to defeat No. 12 Drexel 10-6 in the semifinals and top-seed Towson 12-9 in the championship game. The win vaulted the Blue Hens into the NCAA Tournament where Delaware gave No. 4 seed North Carolina all it could handle before falling 14-13 in a class back-and-forth battle with the Tar Heels. The Hens, led by CAA Player of the Year and Tewaaraton Award finalist Curtis Dickson, finished with a No. 12 final USILA national ranking. Carroll led Delaware to an 11-6 mark in 2005 when the Blue Hens captured the Colonial Athletic Association regular season crown and advanced to the CAA Tournament championship game before falling to Towson 9-8 in the title game. The Blue Hens were one of only four teams in NCAA Division I men's lacrosse to win at least 10 games each of those four seasons (2004-07). Despite the championship game setback, the nationally-ranked Blue Hens earned an atlarge berth into the NCAA Tournament and traveled to No. 5 seed Navy where they suffered a hard-fought 9-7 setback. Delaware posted a 10-6 mark in 2000 when the Blue Hens tied for the America East regular season title and advanced to the tournament championship game. In 2004, the Hens posted a mark of 10-6 and fell to Villanova in the Colonial Athletic Association semifinals. In 2006, the Hens went 12-5 and again advanced to the CAA title game before falling to No. 2 ranked Hofstra. During the 2008 season, the Hens went 9-7 and advanced to the CAA semifinals. A native of Long Island, NY, Carroll, 37, was a standout player at Harborfields High School and moved on to a four-year career at Loyola under then head coach Dave Cottle. While with the Greyhounds, Carroll played four varsity seasons, appearing in 40 career games and leading nationally-rand Loyola to four straight NCAA Tournament appearances.

He moved on to the college ranks where he served as an assistant coach at NCAA Division III Washington & Lee College in Lexington, Va. While at Washington & Lee in 1999, he helped lead the Generals to a record of 13-2 and a berth in the NCAA quarterfinals.

A 2005 sociology graduate of UMBC where he was a three-year standout midfielder, Cross begins his second season with the Blue Hens in 2013. “We are extremely excited to add Rob Cross to our staff,” said Delaware head coach Bob Shillinglaw. “Rob’s background is exceptional, having coached at UMBC with three NCAA tournament experiences followed by coaching opportunities at Harvard and Rutgers. He is an excellent teacher with his primary strengths being in the offensive end of the field and working with goalies. One of his strongest features is his ability to relate to players and to motivate them to excel.” Cross began his coaching career at Mercyhurst (Pa.) College where he served as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator, leading the Lakers to the NCAA Division II national semifinals. Mercyhurst ranked among the top offensive teams in the nation during the season. He returned to his alma mater in 2007 and served three seasons as an assistant coach and co-offensive coordinator for the Retrievers under head coach Don Zimmerman. During his time at UMBC, the Retrievers owned one of the most powerful offensive units in college lacrosse which led the squad to America East conference titles in 2008 and 2009 and NCAA Tournament appearances in 2007, 2008, and 2009. The 2007 squad fell to Delaware in the national quarterfinals. After his three seasons at UMBC, Cross moved to Harvard where he assisted head coach John Tillman for one season in 2010. Despite a 6-6 record, the Crimson offense flourished under Cross' tutelage, ranking in the top 20 nationally in scoring offense and in the top 15 in extra man offense. While at Harvard, he also assisted in the organization and planning of practices, film breakdown, scouting reports and recruiting. Cross then coached at Rutgers University where he served under head coach Jim Stagnitta for one season in 2011. The Scarlet Knight opened the season at 4-0 before finishing with a mark of 6-9. A three-year letterwinner as a midfielder at UMBC, Cross played in 34 games over three seasons and scored 15 goals while dishing out two assists for the Retrievers. He scored two of his career goals vs. Delaware.

The Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences both athletically and academically. The CAA encompasses five of the nation’s nine largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Atlanta. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 12 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 12 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 22 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2011-12, more than 1,900 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 19 teams in 13 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2012. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes six of the nation’s top 25 media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Atlanta (8), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 23 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, CAA COMMISSIONER football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & Tom Yeager field and wrestling. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2011-12, 24 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 51 student-athletes received All-America honors in 16 different sports. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with two teams – George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) – advancing to the NCAA Final Four over the past six years. Three CAA teams earned NCAA Tournament berths for the first time in 2011 as conference champion Old Dominion was joined by VCU and George Mason. VCU knocked off USC, Georgetown, Purdue, Florida State and top-seeded Kansas, while Mason defeated Villanova. In 2006, George Mason captured the nation’s imagination by becoming the first mid-major program since 1979 to reach the Final Four, posting victories over Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State and Connecticut along the way. At least five CAA teams have reached postseason play for the past four years. The CAA has also had great success in women’s basketball, with six teams making the postseason in 2011-12. Conference champion Delaware advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time and was ranked #7 in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll. James Madison beat two ACC and two Big East teams to reach the championship game of the WNIT. Drexel, Hofstra, UNCW and VCU joined the Dukes in the WNIT. Old Dominion, which won an NCAA-record 17 straight CAA titles from 1992-2008, boasts three national championships (1979, 1980, 1985) and was national runner-up in 1997. The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981 and ODU reached the national

semifinals in 2011. Four men’s soccer teams earned NCAA Tournament berths last season and James Madison became the seventh CAA team to reach the final 16 of the event in the past decade. Hofstra’s softball team won the Los Angeles Regional and became the first CAA squad to advance to the NCAA Super Regionals. At least two women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament in three of the past five seasons. William & Mary’s men’s cross country squad has made the NCAA Championship in 12 of the past 13 years. In the pool, George Mason’s Ashley Danner finished second in the 100 breaststroke and fifth in the 200 breaststroke at the 2012 NCAA Championship and received AllAmerica honors. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. On the track, Mason’s David Verburg placed fourth in the 400 meters at the NCAA Championship. The CAA has sent multiple teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in nine of the last 15 years and has had at least 12 players selected in the eight of the last 10 Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also boasts numerous All-Americans in lacrosse, tennis, golf, women’s lacrosse and wrestling. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs and granting visiting academic status to student-athletes traveling to an away contest so that they have access to libraries, academic resource centers and computer labs. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in 1991 and by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference on July 1, 2005.

2013 UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE MEN’S LACROSSE MEDIA GUIDE • BLUEHENS.COM


CAMPUS LIFE The University of Delaware is a state-assisted, private institution of higher education that offers the best of public and private colleges. Delaware combines the personalized attention associated with small colleges with the diversified resources and programs usually found at major research universities. THE FACULTY The individuals most responsible for the attainment of academic excellence are members of the faculty. They have been attracted to Delaware from distinguished universities in America and around the world. Over 89 percent hold a terminal degree in their field. Though many professors have gained national and international prominence for research contributions in their disciplines, teaching remains a primary concern. At Delaware students are exposed to the most experienced professors throughout their academic career. THE UNDERGRADUATES Maintaining an exciting academic environment requires not only outstanding and dedicated professors, but talented students willing to accept academic challenge. By national standards, the University's student body is well qualified: the average SAT scores are well above the national average. Students entering the University typically average nearly 1,200 on the SAT. Over 70 percent maintained an average of B or better during their high school years; and the University attracts more national merit scholars then most comparable institutions and more than some Ivy League schools.

Additionally, approximately 90 percent of UD athletic letterwinners graduate with a degree. • UD was rated a “best value” in the 2003 edition of Kaplan’s The Unofficial, Unbiased Insider’s Guide to the 320 Most Interesting Colleges. LOCATION MAJOR PROGRAMS

Our location in Newark, Delaware, provides a comfortable small town college atmosphere. Newark, with a population of approximately 30,000, is midway between New York City and Washington, DC, and in close proximity to both Philadelphia and Baltimore. You can enjoy the educational and recreational advantages of these major metropolitan areas, as well as the white sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast or the ski resorts of the Poconos. The campus is only minutes from Interstate 95 in one of the most heavily populated corridors in the country, and the University is an active participant in a state that is one of the nation's top corporate centers. Our students and graduates are exposed to many research and internship opportunities just minutes from campus at major corporations such as the Bank of America, DuPont Co., Hercules, ICI Americas Inc., Morgan Bank, Chase Manhattan, and a host of others. In addition, more than 700 companies regularly recruit employees from the University's graduating senior class, putting the University of Delaware among the top schools in the Mid-Atlantic area for career placement.

• The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) gave UD’s professional education programs an outstanding evaluation after visiting the campus in the fall of 2003. The team studied the overall organization of professional education and reviewed all UD’s programs that educate prospective teachers, administrators and school psychologists. Only about a third of the institutions offering professional education programs in the nation are NCATE accredited, and only about 20 NCATE-approved institutions have achieved an assessment as strong as the University of Delaware's. In addition, UD’s secondary social studies program in teacher education earned high praise from the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS). Reviewers there were so impressed with the program that they asked permission to share the report on it with other universities as a model.

• UD’s Elementary Teacher Education Program received top ratings from the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), the specialty organization of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education, the only accrediting organization approved by the U.S. Department of Education. The ACEI CAMPUS report said, in part, “The overall assessment plan was well done…as most universities/colleges are beginThe quality of education at the University of Delaware is enhanced by its Newark campus, a 1,000-acre ning their assessment plans, the University of Delaware is probably ahead of most.

(CHEP) was named one of the best in the nation by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). At the University of Delaware you learn, but you learn about more than books – you learn about life. The three-year, specialist-level graduate program was scrutinized by NASP as part of the National Council for Interacting within the diverse 16,000 undergraduate student population provides growth for the total per- Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) accreditation process.

• UD’s Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management was ranked seventh among the top 25 hospitality programs in the country, tying with one of the oldest such programs in the nation and placing ahead of many well-known programs. The survey, published in 2002 in the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Education, gave UD high marks for its faculty, curriculum and students. Vita Nova, the restaurant in the Trabant University Center run by HRIM students, won the honor for best lunch buffet in Delaware Today’s 2004 Best of Delaware competition. One of the most popular restaurants in Newark, Vita Nova is consistently booked well in advance. • In the 2005 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” three UD graduate programs were ranked among the top 10 in the nation: physical therapy, fourth; and urban affairs and chemical engineering, both ranked ninth. In the 2006 edition, chemical engineering held on to its ninth place ranking, the College of Engineering was ranked 42nd and the School of Education was ranked 39th.

• Careers and Colleges Magazine selected UD as one of its “Cool Schools,” calling it “academically rigorous” and one of the “underrated gems” among American colleges and universities. • Alumni and friends value UD–UD’s first major capital campaign, the Campaign for Delaware, which began in 1998 as a five-year, $225 million fund-raising effort, far surpassed its original goal and generated more than $431 million. Since its inception, the Campaign has targeted key areas for funding: academic support through undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, discovery-based learning initiatives, improved library facilities, faculty support through endowed chairs and named professorships, facilities, equipment and unrestricted general support. The Campaign for Delaware has been successful in all these aspects and has, for example, made it possible to increase the number of endowed faculty positions from fewer than 10 to 106. University investments are now in excess of $1 billion, as recognized in a 2006 report of the National Association of College and University Business Officers. • Recognition by our peers–Some of the most influential groups in higher education today have great things to say about UD: • “Better than any University we are familiar with, Delaware has a clear sense of what it wants to be, namely, a University that offers a high quality undergraduate education with targeted areas of excellence in graduate education and research…. Today, the University is seen as a national model for the integration of information technology in every aspect of University life: teaching and learning, research and service, academic support and campus administration….” The evaluation team wrote that “these substantial achievements could not have happened without extraordinary leadership from the senior administration.” —Middle States Commission on Higher Education, April 2001 • “For several years now, both the members of the Boyer Commission and Reinvention Center constituents have been impressed and even inspired by the examples set by the University of Delaware in the reform and enrichment of undergraduate education. [UD’s Undergraduate Research Program is] one of the best in the country.” —Wendy Katkin, director of The Reinvention Center–The State University of New York at Stony Brook

• Beautiful and well-maintained campus–UD was singled out by The Chronicle of Higher Education as an institution dedicated to maintaining and preserving its campus, in contrast to the national problem of deteriorating facilities for higher education. Descriptions of UD in college guides invariably mention the beauty of the campus: The Princeton Review said that “the majority of UD students are pleased with the quality of life on campus and rave about ‘absolutely the most gorgeous campus anywhere.’” The Fiske Guide to Colleges wrote that UD has “all that the traditional college portrait entails: solid academics, rowdy athletic traditions, Northeastern beauty and all. Delaware’s spacious 1,000-acre campus is an attractive mix of Colonial and modern geometric buildings.” • Undergraduate research at UD is a national model–At any given time, at least 600-700 undergraduates are actively involved in research on the UD campus. Two-thirds of the faculty—and 90 percent of the engineering and science faculty—regularly work with undergraduates in research. Each year, about 300 undergraduate researchers present papers and posters at UD's Undergraduate Research Symposium, and undergraduates are routinely included as authors or co-authors with their faculty mentor on about 50-60 professional publications and presentations each year. Several students have gone on to receive national recognition for their work. • UD students are responsible computer users–UD is a leader in instilling in students the importance of responsible computing behavior. Before students can open an e-mail account on the campus, they must pass an online test that outlines the rights and responsibilities of computer use. UD offers a special educational campaign, called “The Code of the Web,” to raise awareness about responsible computing use issues such as bandwidth abuse and copyright infringement. The humor-based campaign features UD’s award-winning mascot YoUDee as an old-time Western sheriff using catch phrases from the era to make serious points, and it has received a positive response from students and faculty alike. The campaign has been promoted widely on shuttle buses, T-shirts, posters and coffee mugs, as well as in commercials that run during previews in the campus movie theatre and between technology assistance videos played on the campus cable television network. In August 2003, The Chronicle of Higher Education wrote about the campaign. In May 2005, UD was host to James Spertus, vice president of the Motion Picture Association of America and director of its U.S. anti-piracy efforts, and Richard L. Taylor, MPAA senior vice president of external affairs and education, who spoke openly with students about the problems associated with the piracy of entertainment products on college campuses. • Leading by example–The EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR) features the University of Delaware in a 2004 case study about campuses that are highly regarded for their ability to align Information Technologies efforts and investments with institutional goals and priorities. • Responsible behavior –The University of Delaware’s aggressive campaign to fight binge drinking has won it national attention. Since the beginning of the campaign, surveys on high-risk drinking conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health show significant declines in destructive behaviors by UD students. Data indicate that students are drinking alcohol more moderately, drinking alcohol with the express purpose of getting drunk has decreased, fewer students report having hangovers, missing classes and doing something they later regret and there has been a decrease in incidents in which students were insulted by others, became involved in serious arguments or quarrels, were hit or assaulted, had personal property damaged, had their sleep or study interrupted, were expected to “baby-sit” a drunken friend or experienced an unwanted sexual advance. • In 2004, the Education Development Center’s Center for College Health and Safety presented its Presidents Leadership Group Award to UD President David P. Roselle in recognition of the fact that UD was the first in the country to adopt a policy of parental notification when students break campus rules, particularly if they involve potentially dangerous activities. • Supportive parents –Parents of UD students put their money where their pride is! The Council in Aid of Education recently released a report that ranks the University of Delaware number one nationally in giving by parents of students and alumni to a public university. • Marine excellence–UD’s College of Marine and Earth Studies earned high honors from a national Sea Grant college review team that, after a campus visit, said the UD program is “in all respects considered excellent.” UD’s program is “unique and one of a kind in terms of its administrative structure within the University, its management, its high level of research, its outreach and its translation of science to its constituents,” the team wrote.

• When the Founding Fathers were young–The University of Delaware traces its origins to a small private academy founded by the Rev. Francis Alison in 1743. The Rev. Alison’s first class was a remarkable one, possibly the most distinguished of any other class in any school in America. The class of 10 went on to become statesmen, merchants and scholars of reputation. Three of them--George Read, Thomas McKean and James Smith—signed the Declaration of Independence, and Mr. Read also signed the Constitution. Those three names are being memorialized on three new residence halls on the Laird Campus, one of which, George Read Hall, opened for the 2005-06 academic year. • Genius Award-winners–Two UD alumni have won the prestigious MacArthur Fellowships—the so-called “genius award.” Jacqueline Jones, a 1970 graduate who is now Truman Professor of American Civilization and chair of the Department of History at Brandeis University, won the award in 1999, and Charles Lewis, a 1975 graduate and founder and executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Public Integrity, received the honor in 1998. Peter Jeffery, an assistant professor of music at UD from 1984-87, received a MacArthur Fellowship in 1987. • Accreditation–The Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics is one of only 400 institutions throughout the world accredited by AACSB International, the premier accrediting agency for bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting programs. Other agencies that accredit UD programs include the THE WRITING CENTER Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology Inc.; the American Dietetic Association, Commission on The Writing Center provides a place for students to seek help regarding any paper, thesis or writing projAccreditation/Approval for Dietetics Education; the American Physical Therapy Association, Commission on Accreditation in Education; the American Psychological Association, Committee on Accreditation; the ect.
