In June 2017, we completed an Assurance Argument for our mid-cycle review by the Higher Learning Commission.  This followed a 2012-13 self-study and HLC team visit.  Our Assurance Argument and documents from the 2012-13 decennial review are available on our Higher Learning Commission blog. In summer 2021, we will complete our Quality Initiative project. In 2021-22, we will begin work for our 2022-23 decennial review.
