Baker College of Flint Granted Supported Program Status by NKBA

October 27, 2011

The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) has granted NKBA supported program status to Baker College of Flint for its Kitchen and Bath Design certificate program. The NKBA supported program helps educational institutions that have not yet achieved accreditation to receive support from local NKBA professionals and derive other benefits from NKBA’s national headquarters.

“Congratulations to Deb Gerard, interior design program coordinator, for all her hard work and perseverance,” said Dr. Julianne T. Princinsky, Baker College of Flint president. “This achievement is a positive step toward full program accreditation.”

To become an NKBA supported program, an educational institution must have a kitchen and bath curriculum that prepares students for the NKBA certification exam.

NKBA supported programs are evaluated with respect to mission, administration, curriculum, faculty and resources to determine eligibility and ability to fulfill the Association’s requirements for full accredited status.

To date, more than 60 colleges and universities have achieved NKBA supported or accredited status. The accredited program was created by NKBA to serve the professional needs of the industry and to ensure consistent, quality education for students striving to become kitchen and bath design professionals.

At Baker College, the Muskegon campus has been granted supported status, while the Auburn Hills and Clinton Township campuses have achieved full accreditation for their kitchen and bath design certificate programs.
