HLC Mock Open Forums Scheduled

0

All UMKC faculty and staff are invited to attend upcoming Mock Open Forums on Thursday, Sept. 26 and Friday, Sept. 27 as part of our Reaccreditation Process with the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). UMKC needs your engagement in this process.

This fall, UMKC will be  participating in HLC’s decennial review. This is part of our commitment to building and maintaining public trust and promoting best practices in higher education. The UMKC site visit with our external peer review team has been scheduled for Monday, Dec. 2, and Tuesday, Dec. 3. Please hold these important dates on your calendar.

Central to the December site visit and the HLC review processes are a series of Open Forums focused on HLC’s core criterion. The review will focus on student learning, education as a public purpose, promoting a culture of continuous improvement, encouraging transparency and ethical behavior and practice, and ensuring planning and management of resources to ensure institutional sustainability and efficiency (among other things).

In order to prepare for our site visit, we will be conducting Mock Open Forums. The university has invited two consultants to facilitate these sessions. They have provided us with guidance and recommendations throughout our planning process, and we feel this will provide the university community with a good sense of what we can expect in December.

UMKC seeks your input and participation in these important conversations. Please plan to attend all Mock Open Forum sessions on Thursday, Sept. 26 and Friday, Sept. 27. Your participation is critical to ensuring we are putting our best foot forward.
