News & Announcements

Accreditation Update...The countdown stands at 404 days before the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) site visit team arrives at Gustavus. The college’s primary task for the site visit is the preparation of a self-study that evaluates all aspects of Gustavus. A steering committee of faculty, staff and administrators has been working on the self-study since the summer of 2010, gathering evidence that shows Gustavus meets all five criteria for accreditation. The rough draft of this document will be available in fall 2012, and the steering committee will seek feedback from all corners of the Gustavus community before the finalized self-study is approved by the Board of Trustees and submitted to the HLC in February 2013. For more information on the accreditation process and the Gustavus self-study, contact co-chairs Carolyn Dobler (dobler@gustavus.edu, x7481) or Chris Gilbert (cgilbert@gustavus.edu, x6093).
