Next HLC Focus Sessions: Academic Quality and Planning, General Ed

April 10, 2017

In preparation for the next HLC comprehensive visit, a working group is gathering evidence to demonstrate that Webster meets the five criteria for accreditation and developing a first draft of the assurance argument. This spring, the working group is offering "HLC Focus Sessions" on key areas of accreditation. The sessions are designed to provide information, but also to solicit information and examples that support our assurance argument. Please plan to attend sessions relevant to your area.

In Fall 2016, small groups of experts will begin to review outlines of how Webster meets the five Criteria for Accreditation and the evidence collected. Learn more about the steps in this process and the members of the working group.
