The University of Notre Dame will undergo its 10-year comprehensive evaluation for reaffirmation of accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) in April 2024.
Combining a comprehensive self-study, student survey, and in-person site visit, the HLC reaffirmation procedures present participating colleges and universities with the opportunity to articulate how their academic programs, student and faculty services, and assessment and planning infrastructure attend to the HLC quality-assurance criteria:
- 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. Institutional Effectiveness, Resources, and Planning
“Accreditation serves as an important link between institutions of higher learning and the public,” said Maura Ryan, Vice President and Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and Notre Dame’s Accreditation Liaison Officer. “The HLC and other accreditors are responsible for assuring the quality of U.S. colleges and universities. The opportunity to examine our institutional practices and programs as they relate to the University’s mission is something we deeply value.”
