July 25, 2012 — The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) recently announced the appointment of Tom Benberg, EdD, as president/chief executive officer.
The appointment comes after a comprehensive search by the CCE Presidential Search Committee, a committee comprised of a cross section of leadership stakeholders and interested parties within the chiropractic profession.
Benberg joins the CCE after serving as senior vice president/chief of staff for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS) in Duluth, Ga. With an extremely strong accreditation background and widespread respect in the accreditation community, Benberg’s 17 years experience with SACS, helping institutions understand the standards, demonstrate compliance with the standards, and communicate their case effectively will be a significant asset to the CCE’s charge.
“The CCE Executive Committee, councilors, and staff welcome the opportunity to benefit from Benberg’s extensive knowledge of accreditation and his strengths in stakeholder communication, training, and education at this time in our organizational history,” comments CCE Council Chair, Craig Little, DC.
The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) is the agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education for accreditation of programs and institutions offering the Doctor of Chiropractic degree. CCE seeks to ensure the quality of chiropractic education in the U.S. by means of accreditation, educational improvement, and public information.

The CCE is also recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and is a member of the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA).
