NAICU

The National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) serves as the unified national voice of private nonprofit higher education. Since 1976, the association has represented this subset of American colleges and universities on policy issues with the federal government, such as those affecting student aid, taxation, and government regulation. Today, through new communication technologies, an improved governance structure, and increased member participation, NAICU has become an even more effective and respected participant in the political process. In addition, NAICU has spearheaded several major public initiatives, such as the University & College Accountability Network (U-CAN), offering prospective students and their families concise and comparable information on private nonprofit nonprofit colleges and universities; the Student Aid Alliance, an ambitious effort to enhance funding for existing student aid programs; and the nonpartisan National Campus Voter Registration Project that, in every federal election, helps all colleges and universities to conduct both voter education, registration, and participation programs.

Six Sigma Council
Six Sigma Council is a professional accrediting body within the Six Sigma industry that does not provide training, mentoring, coaching, or consulting services. The objective is to ensure that Six Sigma Certified individuals have been exposed to the complete Six Sigma Body of Knowledge and have been required to meet a minimum standard of proficiency for six sigma and its implementation. This is achieved by requiring all training and/or certification providers to meet specific criteria in not only their education requirements, but also in their testing requirements. Originally founded in 2005, Six Sigma Council reviews Yellow Belt, Green Belt, Black Belt, Master Black Belt, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training/certification providers. Trainers include university programs, third party training providers, corporate training programs, independent consultants, and consulting firms. To prevent any conflict of interest, The Council for Six Sigma Certification does not itself offer Six Sigma Certification or Lean Six Sigma Certification. Instead, accredited providers are permitted to use our seal on marketing materials and/or final certification materials. The Council for Six Sigma Certification provides Six Sigma accrediting services to more than 165 countries around the world.
