Missoula College Culinary Arts Program Earns Five-Year Accreditation

February 13, 2014

MISSOULA – The Culinary Arts program at Missoula College University of Montana recently received a five-year accreditation from the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation Accrediting Commission.

Accreditation assures that a program meets standards and competencies set for faculty, curriculum and student services. The process includes an extensive self-study, followed by a site visit by a team of ACF evaluators.

“The process of collecting exhibits and responding to ACF’s challenging questions is a valuable program evaluation process,” said Thomas Campbell, director of Culinary Arts at MC. “Before the self-study, it was easy to philosophize broadly about educational convictions, but the study brought an appreciation for the details that contribute to such philosophy. In short, the work that culminated in this report was an enriching professional endeavor.”

“Missoula College has a great culinary program,” MC Dean Barry Good said. “This accreditation reflects the expertise and dedication of all our wonderful culinary instructors and students.”
