After its last site visit, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC-NCA) recommended 10 years of reaccreditation (2016 - 2017) for the University of Nebraska Medical Center. HLC-NCA accredits UNMC as a whole, and HLC-NCA accreditation complements our many accreditations by specialized accrediting bodies.
The Higher Learning Commission also recommended approval for UNMC's request to expand distance education degree and degree completion programs. Read about the team's exit report.
Preparation for the accreditation team site visit on Jan. 8-10, 2007, was led by Dr. John Benson, supported by Dr. John Adams, Dr. David Crouse and Mary Helms serving as an executive committee, and by the members of the steering committee. They led the task forces in writing the self-study report that was submitted to the Commission.
The self-study report was designed to effectively tell the UNMC story and provide a thorough introduction to UNMC for the site visitors. UNMC's self study is available online.
Our guiding principle:
UNMC will benefit from its self-study for the HLC-NCA.
- Become even more learning-centered.
- Enhance our quality indicators.
- Strengthen strategic planning.
- Deepen our understanding of ourselves.
- Expand institutional data sets and analysis.
- Achieve reaccreditation with no qualifications.
- Future orientation
- Learning focus
- Connectedness to the community
- Distinctiveness of UNMC
UNMC enjoys full accreditation by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of The North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. For more information, go to www.ncahigherlearningcommission.org
