WCSU department of music receives national reaccreditation

DANBURY, CONN. — The Western Connecticut State University department of music recently received reaccreditation from the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).

Department Chair Dr. Dan Goble spoke of the importance of the reaccreditation.

“An achievement of this magnitude is not possible without the collective contributions of a vast constituency,” Goble said. “WestConn’s NASM reaccreditation represents the culmination of over 12 years of teamwork within the institution.”

WCSU President Dr. James W. Schmotter echoed his pleasure with the achievement.

“How pleased was I to receive a copy of the NASM formal letter, affirming accreditation of our music programs,” Schmotter said. “This is the culmination of much hard work on the part of the music department.”
