Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center -Accredited by NAST

Postby Alex » Tue Mar 30, 2010 5:30 pm

Dear students and faculty of UCB Training Center,

The Upright Citizens Brigade Improv and Sketch Comedy Training Center is proud to announce we've gained accreditation through the National Association of Schools of Theatre. As a nationally accredited institution, the Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center joins the ranks of over 160 theatrical institutions of higher learning.

The National Association of Schools of Theatre was established in 1965 to improve educational practices and maintain high professional standards in theatre education. NAST accreditation means that the UCB Training Center meets national standards in terms of educational quality and institutional probity.

This recognition is a historic moment for comedy as a whole. Our current status as an associate member of this association is a major victory for the widespread, national recognition of Long Form improvisation, as developed by Del Close and Charna Halpern, as a performance art form. As the first fully accredited comedy training center, the UCB Training Center hopes to further the national dialog about the importance of sketch comedy and Long Form improvisation in educational, performance, and cultural contexts.

Accreditation assures our students that the methodology, policies and the administration of the Training Center meet stringent national standards. Upon successful completion of the program our students will receive a Certificate of Completion. This certification means every student of the Training Center will be exposed to the same Game-based curricula.

Accreditation also assures our faculty that the methodology and curriculum they have helped to craft, adapt, and continually support is sound and meets national standards. Their role as educators is validated beyond the work carried on by their students but also in the academic field.

Looking Forward,

Alex Sidtis, Managing Director
Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center

Does this mean that Class Performances could be considered Final Exams, and all New York work laws regarding time off and scheduled shifts would apply to UCB "Final Exams"?

For example, could I not work a certain day if I have a Class Performance that day, as NY work laws say "an employee is not required to work if enrolled in an accredited school and his/her final exam is that day"? (i'm paraphrasing)

Maybe UCB training classes could constitute as professional development hours under No Child Left Behind for any teachers out there....?

Does this mean that federal student aid will be offered in the future?

Hi,

Does this mean foreign students might be able to apply for an american student visa?
