Bolstering an unwavering commitment to regulatory excellence, Post University has attracted a well-respected executive to expand its efforts in that area. Thomas “Tom” Bryant has joined Post’s administrative team as Director of Accreditation.

A native of Franklin, and the son of John and Katherine Bryant, he is also a 1970 graduate of Southampton High School.


Bryant brings to Post University a proven record of accomplishment in educational accreditation and compliance.

During a distinguished career, he has prepared hundreds of colleges for successful national, regional and programmatic agency evaluation visits, many of which have resulted in full-grants of accreditation and/or designations of “schools of distinction” by respective accrediting agencies. He also has assisted schools seeking initial or continued state licensure.

Bryant promotes a “total school effort” approach to regulatory compliance based on his belief that a compliant school is one that meets, or exceeds, all its set goals. Over his career, he has presented numerous training workshops and is renowned for his attention to detail and high regard for regulatory compliance.

Bryant has nearly 40 years of experience in the education industry and follows an approach to accreditation that reflects Post University’s unique culture, customer-service philosophy, and commitment to deliver personalized student experiences.

“Tom’s passion for excellence has gained the respect of accrediting agencies, and his proven record of excellence was recognized by ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools & Colleges), which recognized him as Team Leader of the Year in 2011,” said Post University CEO John Hopkins. “Tom is experienced in all aspects of post-secondary administration and will contribute significantly to Post’s regulatory excellence by helping the University meet or exceed all accreditation requirements.”
