HLC Reports

KU archives and organizes select documents related to our institutional accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).  A variety of documents from 2005 through 2019 are presented below. 

- 2019 Mid-Cycle Assurance Review: As part of HLC's accreditation process, KU submitted an Assurance Argument four years after our last comprehensive self-study to demonstrate that we meet each Criteria and Core Component for Accreditation. A campus committee that included faculty, students, and staff from across the university provided input for the Assurance Arguement, which was submitted in June 2019. HLC determined that KU continues to meet all criteria, though noted a concern with assessment which requires a follow-up report due on 9/30/22. 

- 2017 Multi-Location Site Visit: In Fall 2017, KU submitted a Multi-Location Institutional Report that included data about each selected location and explained its operations. An HLC peer reviewer visited and met with acadmeic leaders, faculty, and students. The reviewer examined the evidence to assure the quality of KU's extended operations and the institution's capacity to maintain that quality. 


​- 2015 Comprehensive Review: Every 10 years, KU undergoes an extensive self-study to prepare for a university-wide reaccreditiation review by HLC. KU's last comprehensive review was in 2015, and the institution was granted 10-year accreditation, without stipulations, on May 5, 2015.


- 2005 Comprehensvie Review: In 2005, KU conducted an extensive self-study to prepare for a university-wide reaccreditation review by HLC. The institution was granted 10-year accreditation, without stipulations, on June 24, 2005.
