The following 74 academic programs are currently accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Related Professions.

*Visits are scheduled during the months of November - April prior to the fall hearing.

During a program's accreditation hearing the Council can make one of the following actions regarding the program's accreditation status:

Action 1, Approval: Accreditation or re-accreditation is granted:

  • With commendations: Council may recognize exemplary performance with reference to specific standards and learning outcomes through commendations.
  • With or without recommendations:  Based on the Visitation Report and directly relating to the standards, the Council may suggest non-binding recommendations, which Programs/Specializations may choose to implement. Recommendations are considered minor in nature; they are not grounds for conditional accreditation, or for deferral or denial of accreditation.
  • With or without requirement of additional information and/or minor revisions:  Accreditation or reaccreditation will be contingent upon Program’s response to specific, minor concerns about one or more standards by a date specified in the motion. Failure to provide the requested changes or revisions within the time period will result in placement of the Program on Conditional status.

Action 2, Extension:  Extend current accreditation and defer action on reaccreditation with:

  • Conditions: Conditions are based on noncompliance with specific standards or failure to provide sufficient evidence to document compliance with the standards. Conditions are more serious than Recommendations and Requests for additional information and/or revisions, and may arise from “major concerns” noted by Site Visitors. In the case that a Program/Specialization fails to address conditions by the designated deadline, fails to address the conditions to the satisfaction of the Council, or submits no response to conditions by the established deadline, a warning is issued that withdrawal of accreditation is imminent. Upon receipt of a written petition from the institution and at its discretion, Council may extend conditions for an additional specified period of time. 
  • Warning:  The Program is placed on warning.  Warnings are formal statements issued by the Council that signal serious concerns about lack of evidence supporting compliance with standards and the imminent withdrawal of accreditation if issues are not addressed. Warnings are given when an accredited Program/Specialization is shown to have fallen significantly and/or consistently below standards, or has submitted materials that inadequately document compliance with conditions. It should be noted that the Council may issue a warning to a Program/Specialization that has not previously received one or more conditions. The Program/Specialization is warned that accreditation will be withdrawn if specific improvements are not made within a prescribed time.

Action 3, Deferral: Deferral refers to the act of delaying the decision on accreditation. Deferrals may occur only on initial accreditation reviews. A deferral may be issued when compelling evidence indicates that Program/Specialization weaknesses can be minimized or eliminated in a short period of time.

Action 4, Denial: Accreditation not granted/withdrawn

Outcome 1 from Standard 7.01: In RPTA 110 Career Planning in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism and RPTA 463 Pre-Internship Seminar, students were provided with course syllabi and course packs; the concepts being measured were not necessarily components of the course learning objectives,
Outcome 1 Assessment Method: Students in RPTA 110 (Fall 2015 and Winter 2016) and RPTA 463 (Fall 2015, Winter/Spring 2016) were asked to complete the online version of the Hurd (2008) Competency Assessment starting in week 8 of the quarter. Students rated their skills, knowledge of, and abilities on each item of the assessment on a 4-point Likert-type scale (1=poor, 4=excellent). Mean scores for each of the 40 items were calculated. An independent sample t-test was conducted to determine significant differences between students in RPTA 110 and in RPTA 463 (freshmen and transfer students (RPTA 110), and seniors (RPTA 463), respectively) using SPSS (IBM, Inc.)
Outcome 1 Measure Type: Indirect
Outcome 1 Result: Overall, seniors in RPTA 463 perceive themselves to have higher competencies in the skills, knowledge, and abilities measured on 33 of the 40 items measured. The most significant differences were conducting research & evaluation t(-6.83, p<.001) and condu

Outcome 2 Assessment Method: Spring quarter 2016, for their senior project presentation, students were assessed utilizing the following rubric: clarity and organization 50 points, required content 10 points, and preparation skills 40 points. Three faculty members (J. Greenwood & Schwab), including the instructor of record (B. Greenwood) provided a direct assessment of the senior project presentations for the 17 students enrolled in RPTA 460 for the Spring 2016 term utilizing the rubric. For norming of scoring for the rubric, the instructor of record sent the other two faculty members the rubric in advance for familiarization, shared the presentation guidelines document provided to the students, and discussed the expectations and parameters associated with the presentation. All three faculty members scored each student independently utilizing the established rubric. Afterwards, results were tallied, coded, and then compared to assess inter-rater reliability. Overall inter-rater reliability between the three scores was determined to be above the minimum threshold of 80%, which is deemed acceptable in literature on qualitative assessment. In addition, when comparing each of the individually scored rubrics to the instructor of record, the inter-rater reliability rose to almost 90%. In cases where there was overt disagreement, the misaligned tally was not thrown out. Instead, the misaligned score lowered the established score. For example, if Schwab and B. Greenwood scored a student Superior but J. Greenwood scored a student as Needs Work, the student was assigned a Good rating.

Program Description: The Recreation and Tourism Management Department provides a challenging, experiential, student-centered education to prepare professionals to enhance the quality of life of people and their communities through recreation, leisure and play.
Six-Year Graduation Rate: 80
Outcome 1 from Standard 7.01: Demonstrate entry-level knowledge in the nature and scope of the park, recreation, tourism, and hospitality professions and the historic, scientific, and philosophical foundations of the profession based on evaluation of key class assignments and industry
Outcome 1 Assessment Method: Course specific assessment is the initial direct measure as standard 7.01 is most directly aligned with core classes RTM 278, 402, 490. The 'Core Confidence Survey' was administered to each class and 2016 scores showed the following aggregate means for each course specific learning outcome: (scores range from 1 to 3) RTM 278 (data not available); RTM 402 (data not available); RTM 490 (2.83; N=28). Students are asked to evaluate their confidence on their mastery of knowledge and skills that are part of each core class. Each course objective is formatted as a question describing the content area. Summative assessment measures are also used to collect data for Standard 7.01. The Core Knowledge Test (which is a comprehensive exam given at start and end of the degree program) for AY 2015-16 had an average score of 47.0% for students at the beginning of their degree and 55.7% for students who were completing their degree. Although there was some improvement over the average scores for AY2014-15 (43.8%; 51.2% respectively), the score for those completing their degree was still significantly below our standard. The Senior Portfolio Assessment could not be completed because of missing data.

Program Description: The primary philosophy and goals of the parks and recreation management program at California University of Pennsylvania is to improve the quality of life for our citizens and our communities. To accomplish this, we develop qualified and professional leadership capable of enabling people to achieve individual and family leisure lifestyles which will enrich one’s life and the community. This program of study is also dedicated to the effective preservation, management and use of our natural resources. The growing amounts of leisure time at the disposal of increasing numbers of American people place demands upon both the natural resource base and the social framework of our nation. An expanding population, increased disposable per capita income, vastly improved modes of transportation, trends toward urbanization and suburbanization, higher education levels, mechanization, and the growing propensity of people to live richer, more complete lives has created the demand for parks and recreation management professionals.
