A.T. Still University (ATSU) recently received official notification from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the University’s continued accreditation for the maximum length achievable, 10 years.
More than three years ago, faculty, staff, students, administrators, and trustees came together to develop an evidence-based assurance argument, prepare for site team visits, and host successful visits by HLC representatives in Kirksville, Missouri, and Mesa, Arizona.
The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is an independent corporation founded in 1895 as one of six regional institutional accreditors in the U.S. and accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region, which includes 19 states.
“ATSU is honored to receive ongoing accreditation from HLC,” stated ATSU President Craig M. Phelps, DO. “Congratulations to University trustees, faculty, staff, administration, students, and alumni who worked so hard to assure a positive accreditation outcome.”
