Key words and terms within HLC accreditation


This “argument” is worked on for many months by the Accreditation Team, 多个标准委员会, and by individuals whose area of specialization is under review. This document is sent to the HLC Peer Reviewers who visit the campus. 当被称为参数时, it is really more a comprehensive report outlining how the institution meets each criterion.

Each argument is based on the 任务 and Vision Statements established by the 校董会, so it is important both to 澳门十大正规网投平台 and the reviewers that these be clearly defined and understood by both.

澄清一下, the argument is written based on the results of the works done across campus. The Accreditation Team is constituted to ask for this information, but is not necessarily involved in the creation of the works.

2025 Evidence File Focused 访问

2022证据文件综合 访问


On 2023年6月26日, 澳门十大正规网投平台 was notified that the accreditation for the institution was reaffirmed. This report also called for a return visit from the HLC in fall of 2025.

On 2018年7月9日, 澳门十大正规网投平台 was formally removed from probationary status by the 高等教育委员会 (HLC).

在每种情况下, the entire Highlands community worked together to address the areas of concern specified by the HLC. The university used this  opportunity to develop new programs and initiatives to guide us into a new and positive future. This report led to a return visit to campus by the HLC in 2020.

集中访问 consist of a small team of peer reviewers who visit 澳门十大正规网投平台 to determine whether the university had fully and appropriately addressed those three areas of concern. 还有重点访问, the university was expected to produce an evidence report demonstrating that we have addressed each area of concern.

After the focused visit concluded, the peer reviewers send their recommendations to the 澳门十大正规网投平台 President and HLC Director, and the HLC Institutional Actions Council (IAC). The IAC is a 40-member review council that acts on all recommendations regarding HLC actions. This council then forwards the report with their recommendation to the HLC Board of Trustees. Based on the recommendations of the peer reviewers and the IAC, the HLC Board issues a final report after the focused visit.

How You Can Help with the HLC Process: 高地大学, and all institutions overseen by the HLC, are on a continuous 10-year cycle for accreditation review. Certain reporting requirements continue during these time-frames meaning that we are under constant review.

So you can join at any time with a voluntary commitment in the HLC cycle:

We have 5 HLC Criterion committees: These committees will help to ensure that we have assembled adequate and appropriate documentation to demonstrate compliance in all areas of concern. The sub-committees will also help to prepare the written evidence report that will be submitted to the HLC.

被告知! Try to be as informed as possible about the accreditation process. This helps to ensure that everyone is working towards a common cause and understands the importance of the accreditation process. A great way to stay informed is to attend HLC论坛, review videos and other material produced and sent to the campus periodically, 加入一个委员会.

Provide support as appropriate in all areas of concern: Although we all have our own clearly defined responsibilities at 澳门十大正规网投平台, areas of concern are fairly general and touch on all aspects of institutional functioning. Any point of contact we make with potential 学生 or with current 学生 can help in our recruitment and enrollment efforts. We can all work together to help ensure fiscal responsibility in all areas of university functioning. Timely and thorough participation in institutional planning and assessment efforts will help with all areas of concern.

沟通: Please let us know of any concerns, 建议, or recommendations you may have with respect to the accreditation process. 你可以联系医生。. Keith Tucker, the Accreditation Liaison Officer for 澳门十大正规网投平台, at rktucker@istarcasting.com.
