DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Drake University’s business school leaders have decided to give up an accreditation for a year.

The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/1szAZdk ) officials at the Des Moines school intend to reapply in spring 2015 to the accrediting body, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Drake met 20 of 21 association standards in its last review, in 2011. It fell short in faculty research productivity but was given two years to meet the standard.

Business and public administration dean Charles Edwards says six or seven faculty members still must increase their productivity.

Drake’s spokesman Jarad Bernstein (burn-STEEN’) says the business school’s overall accreditation through the national Higher Learning Commission remains in force.

Edwards says Drake’s College of Business and Public Administration has 1,100 undergraduate students and 450 graduate students.
