The six-person peer-review team will use Zoom to meet with different constituencies to discuss criteria related to the University’s accreditation. The University’s most recent assurance argument, upon which the peer-review team bases its visit, responded to the HLC’s questions that related to five criteria. Topics included diversity, finances, ethics and assessment.
