Accreditation Re-affirmed

UW-Green Bay’s accreditation status has been re-affirmed after the 10-year Comprehensive Accreditation Review that was completed last fall.  In this process, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), one of several organizations in the United States recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, reviewed the University based on several academic and practical criteria addressing the mission, educational quality, and integrity, as well as compliance with federal regulations and academic progress as expressed in such efforts as the Quality Initiative
