Antioch University has been approved for reaccreditation for a ten‐year period by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The formal approval, which was announced on December 9, 2013, is the culmination of a three‐year process that included a substantial “self‐study” of the university and site visits to all five Antioch University campuses and to the central administrative offices. The HLC is an independent corporation and one of two commission members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The HLC accredits degree‐granting post‐secondary educational institutions in the North Central region of the United States.
“We are extremely pleased to have our accreditation reaffirmed by the HLC. The process is complex and rigorous and served as a great way to fully examine how to continuously enhance our ability to serve our students while adhering to our mission. We come out of this as a stronger and more integrated university, and I want to thank our five presidents, our self‐study steering committee and all of the individuals who engaged in this successful reaccreditation process,” said Antioch University Chancellor Felice Nudelman.
Antioch University has been continuously accredited since 1927 and underwent its last comprehensive reaffirmation of accreditation in 2002. Antioch University’s mission is to provide learner‐centered education to empower students with the knowledge and skills to lead meaningful lives and to advance social, economic, and environmental justice.
