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
