Small universities play a very important role in educating students who become tremendous leaders. Mayville State offers numerous opportunities for students to get involved in a variety of activities that provide real-world experiences that help them develop their leadership skills. Playing in intercollegiate and intramural sports, singing in the choir or playing in the band, and belonging to organizations such as Collegiate DECA and student government provide invaluable experiences for our state’s and country’s future leaders.

Accreditation is a process of validation in which colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher learning are evaluated. The standards for accreditation are set by peer review boards whose members include faculty from various accredited colleges and universities. In the accreditation process, institutions must meet the general standards set by the peer review accreditation board. Criteria for assessment may include overall mission, objectives and goals, student admission requirements, student services, quality of education, and reputation of faculty. Accreditation is significant because it is important for students to earn degrees from reputable colleges. Employers are more likely to recognize those institutions that have been through the accreditation process.
