Taliesin, the architecture school run by Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, will lose accreditation because of rule change instituted by Higher Learning Commission.

"The architecture school run by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation on Wednesday criticized a decision by the foundation’s board that will result in the school losing its accreditation. Last week, the Higher Learning Commission, a Chicago-based nonprofit that accredits universities and colleges, told the school it would lose its accreditation in 2017. Two years ago, the commission changed its policy to require that 'accredited institutions must be separately incorporated from sponsoring organizations.' The foundation’s board could have opted to incorporate the school separately, but would risk losing control over its operations. Instead, the foundation’s board voted to forgo accreditation." -- Robin Pogrebin, the New York Times
