The HLC is coming to The University of Tulsa.
So, who is this and what is this about? HLC stands for the Higher Learning Commission. The HLC will send a reaccreditation team to TU on March 5 and 6, 2018, as part of the normal 10-year comprehensive evaluation. The HLC team will review all aspects of the university to ensure that TU is achieving its mission with integrity and that students are learning and are being well served.
The university’s HLC Steering Committee is currently writing the self-study to show that TU satisfies all five criteria for accreditation and to help tell the TU story. In January, it is expected that the HLC will conduct a student survey. We hope that you will look for that opportunity in your inbox and share your part of the story with the commission.
On Nov. 5, 2017, Richard Redner, the HLC Steering Committee chair, met with the university’s Graduate Student Association senators. Dr. Redner is now working with TU’s Student Association leadership and hopes to make a presentation to SA in the near future. The HLC Steering Committee is also planning other events and outreach activities to students. Watch this page and accompanying links for more announcements and events.
