Higher Learning Commission Accreditation
The University of Cincinnati is reaccredited by the Higher Learning Commission/North Central Association (HLC/NCA), following a comprehensive self-study that culminated with a campus visit by a national team of evaluators in April, 2009.
UC was notified of its reaccreditation in fall, 2009, following a two-year self-study examining how UC was meeting national standards for quality and accountability. The voluntary process for reaccreditation takes place every decade.
The UC self-study report provides evidence that UC maintains a rich culture of assessment and reflection – leading to continuous improvement – and meets the high standards set by the Higher Learning Commission.
From the beginning, the university has used this self-study as a once-a-decade opportunity to examine institutional examples of excellence, the challenges ahead, and action steps leading to improvement.
The self-study process and report was organized around five key areas:
- Mission and Integrity
- Preparing for the Future
- Student Learning and Effective Teaching
- Acquisition, Discovery, and Application of Knowledge
- Engagement and Service
