HLC Comprehensive Visit 2021

NSU hosted a 10-year comprehensive visit site team October 18-19, 2021. More than 100 NSU faculty and staff were involved in drafting and compiling supporting evidence for the Assurance Argument (self-study).  In addition to the self-study, five peer reviewers considered evidence from a student opinion survey, federal compliance report, and multi-campus report along with more than 20 interviews conducted across all three NSU campuses and online.

“Accreditation validates that the institution is meeting expected criteria in all aspects of its operations – mission and service to the public, academic programming, finances and resources, governance and administration,” Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs and HLC Accreditation Liaison Officer Dr. Pamela Fly said. “NSU constituents and the general public can be assured that all aspects of the educational process - student learning achievements, degree components, course delivery, and student support systems meet state and federal expectations.”

“Our faculty and staff did exceptional work in preparing materials for this latest review,” President Steve Turner said. “As we look ahead, NSU can take great pride in knowing the institution has and will continue to provide quality, accessible and affordable educational opportunities to our students.”
