kmxU Volume XXXVIII Salem College, Winston-Salem, N. C., Friday, April 25, 1958 Number y Educational Department Receives National Accreditation Salem Is First Liberal Arts College In North Carolina To Get National Recognition As a result of the meeting of the National Council for Accredi tation of Teacher Education on April 11-12, Salem College has been fully accredited for the prepara tion of elementary and secondary school teachers, effective Septem ber, 1957. Salem, in meeting the standards for national accredita tion, became the first liberal arts college in North Carolina to re ceive this recognition. Such accreditation is important because of the prestige Salem will gain and because it will now be much easier for Salem students to get out-of-state teaching jobs.

Other colleges will now begin seeking accredita tion.” In considering Salem’s accredita tion, the council reviewed a report prepared by a visitation team which was on Salem’s campus last No vember. The team, composed of Dr. Roosevelt Basker of George Peabody College for Teachers, Dr. Charles G.
