Shaping the New Flagship
On behalf of our faculty, staff, students and administrators, welcome to the University of Colorado at Boulder website for accreditation in 2010.
CU-Boulder is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). Accreditation review takes place every 10 years and requires a comprehensive evaluation of the university's programs, policies and practices. In February 2010 a team of leading educators will visit CU-Boulder to review the university as a whole and provide recommendations for continued improvement.
In advance of this accreditation review the university has prepared a detailed Self Study Report. The Self Study Report was informed, in large part, by Flagship 2030, the long term strategic plan to redefine how we teach, discover and share knowledge for the benefit of Colorado, the nation and the world. This website is designed to provide the university community and the public with access to the Self Study Report and information about the reaccreditation process. It is also designed to assist the HLC/NCA consultant evaluator team in the review process.
The reaccreditation review process is a unique opportunity for focused introspection about the university's strengths and challenges – and a chance to gain thoughtful feedback from the team of higher education leaders assembled by the NCA's Higher Learning Commission. We welcome this opportunity to share information with the team and accelerate our momentum in shaping the new flagship.
