HLC Self-Study Released to St. Thomas Community Lucy Payne, Wendy Wyatt and Marty Johnston - Accreditation liaison officer and HLC accreditation faculty co-chairs September 27, 2013 After two-and-a-half years of work, the 2013 Higher Learning Commission Self-Study Report is available for community members to download and read. More than 50 St. Thomas faculty and staff were directly involved in the self-study, which also incorporates feedback from the entire community. The report documents how St. Thomas meets the HLC Criteria for Accreditation and offers recommendations for continuous improvement. The report has been shared with our HLC peer reviewer team, and our comprehensive visit for re-accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission is set for Nov. 11-13. Thank you to all community members who served on committees, answered questions, provided information and gave feedback on drafts of the self-study. The self-study report is available via the university’s accreditation website.
