March Update: Reaffirmation of Accreditation

It's hard to believe, but we're less than a year away from our comprehensive visit for our Higher Learning Commission reaffirmation of accreditation. CSU-Global was granted initial accreditation in 2011 which needs to be reaffirmed through the current two-year reaffirmation process, this will culminate in a comprehensive visit on February 22 and 23, 2016. 

We kicked off our reaffirmation last spring and our faculty and staff have been busy collecting evidence as part of the reaffirmation process. We will be evaluated on five criteria and federal compliance. 
We will wrap up our evidence collection phase in the coming weeks and will begin writing our reaffirmation report which will provide a team of peer reviewers with the documentation to show that we meet the following Criteria for Accreditation:
  • Criterion 1. Mission
  • Criterion 2. Integrity: Ethical and Responsible Conduct
  • Criterion 3. Teaching and Learning: Quality, Resources, and Support
  • Criterion 4. Teaching and Learning: Evaluation and Improvement
  • Criterion 5. Resources, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness
We’re entering the final stretch of this important process for CSU-Global, and will keep you informed of our progress.
