    Description

    Accreditation by the NRPA/AALR Council on Accreditation assures that recreation, park resources and leisure services programs meet the minimum standards for training professional leisure services providers in the U. S. The purpose of this research is to identify variables that distinguish NRPA/AALR accredited from nonaccredited recreation, park resources and leisure services programs to shed additional light on accreditation. The study identified size of full-time faculty and the number of full-time students as the two variables that distinguish accredited from nonaccredited recreation, park resources and leisure services programs. Suggestions are provided that may assist smaller programs to attain accredited status.
