MSU HLC Assurance Argument 2016
Mayville State University
The Open Pathway: HLC Pathways for Reaffirmation of Accreditation
On-Campus visit on April 25-26, 2016
Mayville State University (MSU) will host a campus team visit from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) on April 25-26, 2016 as part of the new Open Pathways for Reaffirmation of Accreditation process. MSU was fully reaccredited by the HLC in 2006, so the upcoming visit is part of the regular ten year reaffirmation process.
The Open Pathway process requires an institution to designate one major improvement effort it has undertaken as its Quality Initiative for reaffirmation of accreditation. The Quality Initiative should suit the institution’s present concerns or aspirations. MSU completed a Quality Initiative Project, entitled Academic Quality: Improvement through Assessment in year eight of the accreditation cycle. The reaffirmation process requires the campus to write an assurance argument (formerly a self-study) with linked evidence plus a federal compliance report. All materials for the reaccreditation are placed in the HLC Assurance System, an online content management program that houses the institution's self-study and all evidence files. The Assurance System replaces traditional "paper-based" materials.
This web page has been created to provide access to relevant HLC reaccreditation documents and processes. MSU has also provided its Assurance Argument and Federal Compliance narrative text. The evidence files and appendices as referenced are not available on the public web presence.
