The self-study process is structured on the criteria for accreditation as outlined by the Higher Learning Commission. Each criterion has a dedicated subcommittee comprised of broad campus representation (staff, faculty, and a trustee). Federal compliance is represented by professional staff. In order to ensure broad campus representation, we have an advisory board made up of various campus constituencies.
