A team of peer reviewers representing the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) will be on campus Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 8 and 9, as part of the accreditation process for Missouri S&T, and several forums will be held on Monday, Oct. 8, to help the reviewers assess whether S&T meets HLC’s criteria for accreditation.

The forum topics, times and locations are as follows:

  • Mission (clear and articulated publicly; guides operations), Integrity (conduct is ethical and responsible)
    • 10-11 a.m., Havener Center, St. Pat’s A
  • Teaching and Learning Quality (provides high quality education), Teaching and Learning Evaluation and Improvement (demonstrates responsibility for educational quality, evaluates effectiveness for student learning, and promotes continuous improvement)
    • 11:10 a.m.- 12:10 p.m., Havener Center, St. Pat’s A
  • Resources, Planning, Effectiveness (resources, structures, and processes are sufficient, and the institution plans for the future)
    • 2:50-4 p.m., Havener Center, St. Pat’s A

HLC accreditation is necessary for Missouri S&T to be eligible for federal student aid, and accreditation of our undergraduate and graduate programs is critical to their academic success, recruitment and retention efforts, and national recognition.
