Dear Colleagues:

Over the coming week, we need your involvement in our ongoing accreditation process with the Higher Learning Commission.

Last Thursday and Friday, two accreditation consultants visited campus to conduct mock open forums that approximate typical open forums during comprehensive evaluation site visits. Thank you to all members of our campus community who participated in these important discussions.

The consultants also reviewed our draft assurance argument and evidence files. As the HLC committees complete their work, it is time to open up the draft to the broader campus community.

The draft is available at

Please review the assurance argument for errors of fact and email any results from your review to by Monday October 7 at 12 noon.

More information about UMKC’s accreditation is available at

Thank you for your engagement throughout this process. Please hold December 2 (all day) and 3 (morning) on your calendars for the comprehensive evaluation site visit.
