HLC Campus Visit

April 25-26, 2016 

The Comprehensive Evaluation Visit was the culminating piece to the peer review process. An evaluation team comprised of seven peer reviewers from other HLC-accredited institutions visited CMU on April 25 and 26, 2016. Using the Self-Study as its frame of reference, the team visited with many groups on campus to verifying CMU's compliance with the Criteria for Accreditation.

Site Visit Team

The Higher Learning Commission relies upon the work of peer reviewers for its accrediting activities. These volunteers generously share their knowledge and experience to assure and advance institutional quality. The Commission maintains a Peer Review Corps of approximately 1,300 faculty and administrators from institutions within the nineteen state North Central region. The peer reviewers assure that an institution is complying with the accreditation criteria as well as for helping an institution advance within the context of its own mission.

Experienced evaluators are familiar with accrediting requirements and with higher education. Their site visit is designed to verify information provided by the institution that it meets accreditation criteria set forth by the Higher Learning Commission. The following peer review team visited Central Michigan University April 25 and 26, 2016.
