HLC Reports

KU archives and organizes select documents related to our institutional accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). A variety of documents from 2015 through 2019 are presented below.

2019 Mid-Cycle Assurance Review

As part of HLC's accreditation process, a campus committee from across the university provided input for KU's Assurance Argument. The Argument was submitted in June 2019 to demonstrate KU meets the Criteria and Core Components for Accreditation. A peer review team evaluated the Assurance Argument and HLC accepted the recommendations outlined in the Team Report.


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. HLC's peer reviewer examined evidence to assure the quality of KU's extended operations and the institution's capacity to maintain that quality.
