Work on a comprehensive self-study that will reaffirm UNC's accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission continued during fall semester and the university recently learned that a key element of the self-study process - the requisite visit by an HLC review team - is scheduled for March 9-11, 2015.
With the start of fall semester, membership on the self-study's five Criterion Committees was finalized, including the naming of two co-chairs for each. The committees started the process of evaluating the extent to which the university is meeting each of the five HLC criteria for re-accreditation. They'll also respond to the institutional questions outlined in the third of the university's three goals for the self-study, which is to use what's learned in the self-study process to identify ways in which UNC will continue to embrace, advance and cultivate its distinctive role among Colorado's public doctoral research universities.
A team of Evidence Coordinators finished the initial stage of evidence collection during fall semester, compiling and indexing an initial resource library in SharePoint of more than 2,000 documents that Criterion Committees are using in their work. Coordinators and committee members will continue to add documents to the collection throughout the duration of the study.
In late February, the Higher Learning Commission notified UNC that the HLC Review Team will be on campus March 9-11, 2015. Based on this information, the HLC self-study coordinators and the HLC steering committee will finalize the timeline for the study, with a final version to be shared with the campus later this spring.

It's the policy of the University of Northern Colorado that research involving human subjects must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (see University Regulation 3-8-104). This policy applies to UNC faculty, students and staff. The major responsibility for maintaining ethical standards and protecting human rights rests with individual researchers and research advisors.
The Institutional Review Board offers an added measure of assurance and serves as a local resource for the interpretation of ethical guidelines. You can read more about UNC policy governing research with human beings on the Office of Research website.
