WVU Self-Study for 2014 Reaccreditation Available
A report prepared by West Virginia University for the Higher Learning Commission is now available online.
Officials say the self-study demonstrates how WVU fulfills the commission's criteria for accreditation.
The university is up for reaccreditation this year by the agency which oversees accreditation for degree-granting colleges and universities. A team of peer evaluators will visit the school in April.
WVU's last accreditation was in 2003-2004. The self-study component of the accreditation process began in July 2011.
The school says that the study concludes that WVU "honors its mission as a land-grant university." The study also concludes the school remains dedicated to teaching and learning, research and scholarship, diversity and inclusion, outreach and economic development, as well as promoting the health and quality of life of West Virginians.
