CAPACS Informational Session in Toronto, July 15-21, 2018

CAPACS will conduct an Informational Session, "Getting Your Sociology or Interdisciplinary Program Accredited By CAPACS (the Commission on the Accreditation of Programs in Applied and Clinical Sociology)," at the XIX ISA (International Sociological Association) World Congress of Sociology. The Session, organized by CAPACS Chair, Dr. Michael Fleischer, and CAPACS Vice Chair, Dr. Norma Winston, and coordinated by Commissioner, Dr. Tina Uys, (ISA RC46 Clinical Sociology President), will be chaired by Commissioner, Dr. Amitra Wall (Buffalo State University -- SUNY). It is scheduled between July 15-21, 2018, at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Additional details on the date, time, and location of the session will follow, when available.

  • CAPACS Chair, Dr. Michael Fleischer (Organizational Dynamics) will present an interactive slideshow and discussion on the "History and Overview of CAPACS Accreditation and Accreditation in the Social and Behavioral Sciences.".
  • CAPACS Vice Chair, Dr. Norma Winston (University of Tampa), will discuss how "Programs in Sociological Practice Prepare for an Accreditation Review and Site Visit by CAPACS".
  • Commissioners, Dr. Tina Uys (University of Johannesburg), and Dr. Jan Fritz, (University of Cincinnati) will discuss the "Accreditation of International Programs by CAPACS: Important Considerations."

Special attention will focus on the increasing global demand to accredit disciplinary and professional programs in the social and behavioral sciences; the oversight of higher education accreditation commissions; and the creation of CAPACS in 1995, as a joint initiative of the Society for Applied Sociology (SAS) and the Sociological Practice Association (SPA), which merged in 2006, to form the Association for Applied and Clinical Sociology (AACS). The presentations will highlight CAPACS accreditation standards, and the benefits of CAPACS accreditation for Program faculty, students, and alumni, their host institutions, and the public-at-large. The session is particularly useful to Sociology Departments that house programs in applied, clinical, and engaged public sociology, and sociological practice at the Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral levels of higher education.
