高等教育委员会

亚博体育 社区 College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, 通常被称为HLC, 并获得伊利诺伊州社区大学委员会(ICCB)的认可.

In general, the HLC and other accrediting bodies focus on the following functions:

  • 评估学术课程的质量
  • 营造持续提升学术质素的文化氛围
  • Involving faculty and staff comprehensively in institutional evaluation and planning
  • 建立专业认证和执照的标准

The HLC has established several pathways of accreditation from which an institution can choose to match that institution’s culture and to focus on evidence-based decision-making.

In 2002, 亚博体育 applied for and was selected as a Vanguard Institution for the Academic Quality Improvement 程序 (AQIP). AQIP模型强调过程开发和评价, 持续改进, 以及基于证据的决策. 一个机构是如何做出决策的? How does an institution gain input on strengths and opportunities from both internal and external stakeholders? 机构如何监察结果,找出改善的方法?

和任何认证机构一样, the HLC began in 2014 to examine its three pathways to assure consistency and connection to the Federal guidelines for accreditation. That work resulted in the phasing out of AQIP and the revision of the Open and Standard Pathways to include AQIP practices.

亚博体育在2017年过渡到标准途径, completing some final requirements under AQIP and moving to the timeline of the Standard Pathway.

确认认可包括若干举措, also outlined on the Institutional Effectiveness page of the 亚博体育 website.

回答一系列的问题, an institution uses the Assurance Argument to describe systems and processes and the results, 遵循教育部的认证标准. This Assurance Argument is the compilation of the answers to the question “How do you know?” Two Assurance Arguments are completed in the 10-year accreditation cycle. 因为亚博体育正在完成向标准途径的过渡, the 2017 Systems Portfolio was a hybrid approach to answering the questions of the Assurance Argument.

参加九年级的综合评估, a review team visits campus and meets with stakeholders for a first-hand view of the workings of an institution. 亚博体育的全面访问计划于2024年2月进行.  涉众目前正在处理所需的保证论证, 取代了系统投资组合, 以及联邦合规审计.

All of these activities are reviewed in the Reaccreditation Affirmation process in the last year.

亚博体育的认证被重申到2022-2023年.

In 2023 work on the Assurance Argument has been undertaken by a cross-section of employees based on their areas of expertise and knowledge of procedures and policies. The Criterion Leaders Group is directing the development of responses to each Core Component:

标准1任务-约翰·奥利弗,雪莉·鲍德温

Criterion 3 Teaching and Learning: Quality 资源, and Support — Meredith Johnson-Palmer, Dr. Kona琼斯

Criterion 4 Teaching and Learning: Evaluation and Improvement — Katie Raisner, Andy Hynds, Dr. 马修Wiediger

Before enrolling in a program intended to satisfy a particular state’s educational requirements for the practice of a particular occupation requiring licensure, students are strongly encouraged to review the information under the respective program in the current 亚博体育 目录. Students are also encouraged to contact the appropriate licensing agency to seek information and additional guidance before beginning a program outside of their Home state. Institutions participating in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) are required to provide related disclosures; institutions that participate in federal student financial aid programs must meet similar federal requirements.

If 亚博体育 社区 College has not determined whether a program meets the educational requirements for licensure or certification outside the state of Illinois, the student should contact the licensing entity to determine whether the 亚博体育 program meets the educational requirements for licensure or certification in the state of residence or employment.
