Site Visit Overview

The last and most important element of the 10-year comprehensive accreditation review process is the Peer Review Team Site Visit, which will occur on October 9-10, 2017.  It is the Peer Review Team’s responsibility to review all of the documentation that have been prepared for them and to meet with the University’s constituents.  The full process is described on the HLC Comprehensive Evaluation Visit page.

In 2017, UWGB will be visited by three peer reviewers:
  • Dr. Joyce Phillips Hardy, Professor of Biology, Chadron State College (Team Leader)
  • Dr. Deborah E. Bridges, Professor of Agriculture, University of Nebraska at Kearney
  • Dr. Randy Lee Cagle, Dean, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Minnesota State University Moorhead
Dr. Michelle Malott (Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Indiana University East) will be unable to visit campus, but will assist the Peer Review Team with research for the review.
