Email & Notes from Campus Blog, 9/6/2016
This fall, the university is entering the home stretch of a three-year process to reaffirm its accreditation. Now, we’re asking you to help bring this effort across the finish line. In the coming weeks we are hosting forums open to faculty, staff and students to learn how you can aid in this all-important reaffirmation of accreditation. For those who don’t know what that might mean, accreditation is an official assurance that the university meets national educational standards and that it is continually improving. The university has enjoyed accreditation for more than a century, having been last accredited for a 10-year term in 2006. The accreditation process provides an excellent opportunity to recognize the significant accomplishments we’ve made since then, and also identify areas for improvement and investment. The forums are in advance of a visit from a peer-review team on behalf of our accreditors in late October.
