TODAY'S NEWS

Please review second draft
of reaccreditation self-study document

On Oct. 29, the HLC Self-study Steering Committee invited feedback on the first draft of the reaccreditation self-study document.

After considering and incorporating as much of the feedback as possible in a short turn-around time, you are invited to read and comment on the revised version.  Please focus primarily on verifying the accuracy of statements and data, and on completeness.  Note that many of the links to documents and data included in the electronic resource room are not currently active and will be fixed over the course of next week. 

Corrections should be submitted in writing to hlc@uakron.edu before Dec. 17.

The final draft will be submitted to the Higher Learning Commission on Dec. 19.
