Higher Learning Commission Monitoring Report Draft

In 2015, Roosevelt’s comprehensive accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission was reaffirmed for 10 years. The University met the accreditation standards for 19 of 21 core components. The Reaffirmation Review praised the University in many areas, especially in academics and in the Roosevelt community’s commitment to living its mission. The Reaffirmation Review stated, “Roosevelt provides a high quality educational experience that directly supports its mission.” In addition, the Review praised the University’s faculty, assessment and support services, lauding the University for integrity, freedom of expression, intellectual inquiry, planning and physical resources. A review of Federal Compliance covering areas including student complaints, public information, transfer policies, crime statistics and academic policies found that the University met every regulation.

While the Reaffirmation Review was positive, two core components were met with concerns. Specifically, the Review expressed concerns about the University’s finances, board training and evaluation, and transparent communication and commitment to shared governance. The Review requested three monitoring reports in response to these issues.
