UM-Dearborn prepares for HLC visit Oct. 9-10


The HLC will visit campus as part of its Fourth Year Standard Pathway Comprehensive Evaluation. UM-Dearborn is currently seeking public comment in advance of the visit.

UM-Dearborn will welcome a team from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to campus October 9-10, 2017, for a Fourth Year Standard Pathway Comprehensive Evaluation. The visit will allow the university to demonstrate its continued commitment to higher education, as well as improvements and advances made in general education, assessment, program reviews and tracking and responding to student complaints

The HLC reaccredited UM-Dearborn in 2013 after submission of the UM-Dearborn HLC Self Study and a campus visit. Its report at that time noted several of the university’s strengths, including its excellent faculty and staff; strong alignment between the university’s mission, Metropolitan Vision and Vision 2020 strategic plan; commitment to diversity and inclusion; and strong campus-wide participation in all stages of the self-study and strategic planning.
