Accreditation team to visit DePaul University in May

Higher Learning Commission seeks community comments

​​​CHICAGO — DePaul University’s re-accreditation review by the Higher Learning Commission this spring will include a campus visit in May by an evaluation team representing the commission. The independent corporation, one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States, accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in its 19-state North Central region.

DePaul has been accredited since 1925. The visit is the culmination of the university’s decennial review for institutional re-accreditation.

As part of this cycle’s comprehensive evaluation, DePaul must outline how the university meets the commission’s criteria for accreditation and share federal compliance data. Over the last year, the Office of the Provost has been engaging members of the campus community in the assembly and development of the re-accreditation materials.

The public is invited to submit comments regarding DePaul in advance of the May 15-16 visit with the eight-member evaluation team.

The public may submit written comments on the commission’s website at or send them to:
