As part of its re-accreditation process, The University of Akron is performing a self-study and will host a site visit from March 3-6, 2013.
Recently, the HLC introduced five new criteria for evaluating institutions, referred to as the Gamma Version of HLC Proposed Criteria for Evaluation and Assumed Practices. Over the coming months, UA steering committee members will lead writing teams to address each of the five newly revised HLC core criteria.
The five Criteria for evaluation and their respective writing team leaders include:
► Criterion One: Mission
- Writing Team Leader: Julie Burdick
► Criterion Two: Ethical and Responsible Conduct
- Writing Team Leader: Elizabeth Reilly
► Criterion Three: Teaching and Learning – Quality, Resources, and Support
- Writing Team Leader: Stacey Moore
► Criterion Four: Teaching and Learning – Evaluation and Improvement
- Writing Team Leader: Linda Subich
► Criterion Five: Resources, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness
- Writing Team Leader: Harvey Sterns
Supplemental to the criteria writing teams, David Cummins will lead a writing team on federal compliance.

- Karla Mugler, site visit coordination
