MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Representatives from the Higher Learning Commission are in the middle of a visit to Northern Michigan University. The commission is responsible for certifying NMU’s accreditation. It’s renewed on an eight-year cycle.
The visit includes taking an in-depth look at NMU’s various reports on programs, classes and student performance.
Monday afternoon, the representatives sat down for meetings and had tours of the campus.
“Accreditation for Northern Michigan University is really important and going through this process is important to our students and our community,” NMU spokesperson Derek Hall said. “For us to be a top-notch university we have to have accreditation and to go through this is a great opportunity for us to show what we're doing and to have that verified by an outside agency.”
The visit from the HLC lasts for three days. NMU officials said they aren’t expecting the results from the visit until sometime this summer.
