Congratulations on Reaffirmation of Accreditation!

On June 16, 2015, the Higher Learning Commission continued UNC’s accreditation, with the next reaffirmation of accreditation in 2024-2025.  The HLC’s action culminates a three-year journey of self-reflection and evaluation that involved opportunities for input from the entire campus community.

A peer review team visited UNC on March 9-11.  In their report, the team wrote that their “visit confirmed that personalized and transformative student learning experiences are at the heart of what UNC is accomplishing.”

While on campus, the team met with approximately 300 faculty, staff, students, and administrators in scheduled meetings and open forums.  Based on their evaluation of UNC’s self-study, interactions with the campus community, and review of nearly 800 evidentiary documents, the team found that UNC is fully meeting all of the Criteria for Accreditation.
