Marquette seeks campus feedback for HLC reaffirmation of accreditation

Marquette, which is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, is currently going through its reaffirmation of accreditation — a process the university goes through every 10 years to maintain its accreditation. As part of the process, Marquette’s HLC Leadership Team is seeking faculty, staff and student feedback on a report that will be submitted to the HLC this summer.

This report — called an assurance argument — addresses the five criteria associated with accreditation, and we as an institution are called upon to demonstrate, with the use of evidence, the ways in which Marquette meets or exceeds criteria expectations.

How to provide feedback

Faculty, staff and student input is important to ensuring that the assurance argument accurately reflects how Marquette meets or exceeds criteria expectations. Here’s how you can provide feedback:

  1. The draft assurance argument is posted online — please read any of the portions of the report that are relevant to your work or experiences at Marquette. The table of contents provides hyperlinks to its respective sections. (Note: You must be on campus or connected to VPN to access the report.)
  2. Please answer the questions provided in this Qualtrics survey. You will only be prompted with questions related to the sections you have reviewed and wish to provide feedback on.

The survey will close on Friday, March 31. The HLC Leadership Team will compile the feedback and revise the assurance argument an additional time before submitting it to the HLC later in the summer.

Contact Dr. Gary Meyer, senior vice provost for faculty affairs and chair of the HLC Leadership Team, with questions.
