Although professional accreditation has existed well over a century, the accreditation of computing programs is a relatively new experience. This paper highlights some of the important aspects of computing accreditation, particularly from the perspective of CSAB. In essence, this narrative presents a history of the organization as it celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary. The work discusses the early days of its inception, its success as a respected accrediting agency, its actions taken over the past decade, and its planned activities for the future.
