Drake will host representatives from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 23 and 24. The five-member team will conduct focused interviews, meetings, and open forums to learn more about our mission, operations, and aspirations, as we make our case for ongoing institution-wide accreditation. This visit gives the HLC team a chance to ask questions, hear input, and generally follow up on information we shared with them in a dossier filed with the commission in early September.
Please keep an eye out for invitations to attend meetings and forums this week. A complete list of forums and meetings can be found on the Conversations website. Also visit the website to learn more about the accreditation process and to view Drake’s 108-page self-study.
