Attend April 2 HLC Open Forum about Teaching and Learning: Evaluation and Improvement

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 4 – Teaching and Learning:  Evaluation and Improvement
Tuesday, April 2, 3 to 4 p.m., Memorial Union, River Valley Room 206

Or participate online.

For the Criterion 4 self-study, we consider whether:

  • We have appropriate policies and procedures in place to ensure the quality of our educational programs.
  • We have effective ways to collect, analyze and use assessment data to enhance student learning.
  • We are committed to improving student retention, persistence and completion rates.

We place an emphasis on educational achievement and continuous improvement through assessment.

A draft of the Criterion 4 self-study report will be available at for download by the start of the HLC Open Forum on April 2.

Your feedback is due April 9.
