Attend March 26 HLC Open Forum about Teaching and Learning: Quality, Resources, and Support

The University of North Dakota (UND) is embarking on the process of self-study and reporting for reaccreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Your participation in the self-study process is crucial for UND’s reaccreditation process and to make UND exceptional.

All faculty, staff and students are invited to the HLC Open Forum to learn about the preliminary results of the self-study:

Criterion 3 – Teaching and Learning: Quality, Resources, and Support
Tuesday, March 26, 3 to 4 p.m., Memorial Union, River Valley Room 206

Or participate online.

For the Criterion 3 self-study, we consider whether:

  • Our degree programs are current and appropriate.
  • We provide students with a high-quality educational experience.
  • We provide the resources and support necessary to help students learn effectively.
  • We offer an enriched educational environment.

We explore such topics as our Essential Studies Program, student research opportunities, student advising, learning spaces, support for faculty and staff, and faculty evaluation.

A draft of the Criterion 3 self-study report will be available at for download by the start of the HLC Open Forum on March 26.

Your feedback is due April 2.
