Accreditation Committee

The Accreditation Committee supports CNM's Higher Learning Commission (HLC) efforts and determines which CNM processes best demonstrate HLC’s criteria.

The Accreditation Committee supports the College's efforts associated with the Higher Learning Commission, including:

  • Communicate accreditation implications for College processes/interventions
  • Oversee compliance with the HLC's Criteria for Accreditation
  • Review the College's Quality Initiative project and submission
  • Submit the College's Assurance Argument, federal compliance reports, and related work
  • Manage updates of the College’s submission of quarterly, programmatic, or annual reports due to the HLC. 

The committee determines which CNM processes best demonstrate HLC's criteria, which process outcome measures should be tracked, what analyses should be conducted, and how the findings can be used to inform administrative decisions.
