Open forums have been scheduled Monday, March 3, as part of the accreditation visit from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
NIU engages in a thorough self-study every 10 years and prepares a report as evidence in support of continuing institutional accreditation by the HLC, which is one way NIU publicly demonstrates its commitment to quality and willingness to be held externally accountable to those the university serves.
Members of the HLC evaluation team will lead the forums.
- Open Forum for Faculty: 11 to 11:50 a.m. in Holmes Student Center 505
- Open Forum for Staff: 11 to 11:50 a.m. in Holmes Student Center Illinois Room
The three-day visit by the HLC evaluation team, which ends Wednesday, March 5, is the culmination of a process for renewal of accreditation that began during the fall semester of 2011.
