The University of Michigan – Ann Arbor undergoes institutional reaccreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) in ten-year cycles. Each cycle culminates in a comprehensive evaluation, the next of which takes place in the year 2020 and involves several components, including the following:

Faculty and staff lead this work for each school and college, Student Life, and the University Library, in collaboration with a core team from the Provost’s Office and the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching who oversee the process. Nearly every campus unit is involved in the reaccreditation process in some way.

A team of peer reviewers appointed by the HLC visits campus March 23-24, 2020. Inquiries regarding the 2020 reaccreditation cycle can be directed to the core team at accred2020@umich.edu.
