Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Accreditation
HLC Grants Full Accreditation to UND
Based on a self-study by the University and the final report of a team that visited the University in October, the Higher Learning Commission's Institutional Actions Council has continued the accreditation of University of North Dakota with the next Reaffirmation of Accreditation in 2023-24.
2013 Self-Study Report
UND underwent a three year in-depth self-study process as part of the HLC's accreditation process.
In taking a critical look at UND as an institution, the self-study pointed out many areas where we are doing exceptional work. It also discovered areas for improvement, and these changes will require dedication and participation from the campus community to be successful.
In October 2013, the HLC conducted a site visit to UND. For three days, a five-member team examined many aspects of the campus and its programs to validate the information in UND's self-study report.
More than 150 people across the University played important roles in this process, and many more were a part of discussions during the HLC's campus visit that enabled the HLC to gain a true sense of the character and mission of UND.
At the conclusion of the visit, the site team members complimented the University on the thoroughness of the self-study, on the campus and community awareness of the importance of their visit and on the many strengths of UND.
The reaccreditation process has shown us a clearer path to fulfilling our Exceptional UND vision. We will continue to work together to keep the momentum going, and advance UND from great to exceptional.
