NCARB Comments on NAAB's 2009 Conditions for Accreditation

Washington, DC—The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) has reviewed the National Architectural Accrediting Board’s (NAAB) 2009 Conditions for Accreditation, Public Comment Edition, which was released for public comment in February 2009.

NCARB used two criteria to guide its review process and develop recommendations. The first was whether the proposed language of the conditions would adversely impact the architecture profession’s capacity to serve as leaders and mentors in the world of design and construction. The second was whether the proposed language would make students less capable of successfully participating in the Intern Development Program (IDP).

NCARB’s comments centered around four areas:

  • Definitions of Achievement Levels
  • Application of the Definitions of Achievement Levels to the Student Performance Criteria (SPC)
  • Recommended Revisions to the SPC
  • Role of the Intern Development Program (IDP) Education Coordinator
