Words cannot adequately express the appreciation we at Florida Polytechnic University have for Dr. Joseph Silver and his team of consultants for assisting our institution in achieving initial accreditation… As part of that creation, Florida Poly was given an impossible timeline for regional SACSCOC accreditation of two and a half years.

Not only did Silver and Associates agree to take on the challenge, they helped us every step of the way and made sure we met that timeline.”
