Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Accreditation
Successful Completion of HLC Assurance Report
UND submitted its 2017-18 assurance report in January of 2018, and received a letter from the HLC stating that the seven-member review team had affirmed UND’s continued compliance with all HLC accreditation criteria. No monitoring of any sort was determined to be necessary.
The next step in continued accreditation will be planning and completing a multi-year Quality Initiative project. Planning for that project begins in 2018-19, and the project must be completed at least one year prior to the next reaffirmation review in 2023. The HLC describes the Quality Initiative as a “major” project “designed to suit [the institution’s] present concerns or aspirations….[It] is intended to allow institutions to take risks, aim high and, if so be it, learn from only partial success or even failure.”
More information on the Quality Initiative will become available once planning begins.
