Message from the President

This is an exciting time in the life of St. Cloud State University. Among the highlights we look forward to this spring is the HLC Accreditation Team’s visit April 15-18. We are grateful to the many members of our campus community who worked so hard to prepare for this important event, and I join them in offering a warm welcome to the members of the Team.

Our self-study document, compiled and written with input from more than 100 committee members and other faculty, staff and students from across campus, is now available on the HLC Web site. The self-study is a thorough analysis and assessment of our university’s effectiveness in meeting our own mission and goals as well as the Higher Learning Commissions criteria for accreditation.

We’re proud to be doing a Web-based regional accreditation visit for the first time at SCSU. I invite you to look through the self-study and to participate in the focus groups that will be scheduled during the Team’s visit.

Through the accreditation process we are reaching higher in our commitment to quality assurance and ongoing improvement of our institution and its programs. I encourage us all to do our part in the culmination of this important process. I appreciate your continuing participation and support.
