Accreditation Review

Purdue University Calumet scheduled
for reaccreditation review May 7-9

The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association will visit Purdue University Calumet May 7-9 to conduct its Academic Quality Improvement Process (AQIP) of accreditation review.

7-year review

AQIP review takes place every seven years to assess Purdue Calumet’s ongoing ability to meet the Commission’s Criteria for Accreditation. The review will be based on evidence of continued improvement of student learning, as well as abilities to measure and improve other academic, business and communication processes.

In addition to reaffirming accreditation, AQIP review is valuable in providing a third party perspective on university strategies for improvement. Components of the process include focus on review of general education objectives, academic programs, student quality and retention, and faculty and staff job satisfaction.

Feedback invited

As part of the accreditation process, Purdue University Calumet invites feedback from the public about substantive matters related to university quality or academic programs. Written, signed comments should be directed to: Third Party Comment, The Higher Learning Commission, 230 South LaSalle St., Suite 7-500, Chicago, IL 60604-1411. Public comments also may be directed to the commission web site at

Comments must be received no later than four weeks before the start of the visit.

This review is part of an ongoing collaboration between Purdue University Calumet and AQIP. It affords the university responsibility for continued improvements and opportunities to offer stronger and more dynamic solutions for the future.

Since the AQIP effort is continuous, Purdue University Calumet is better able to enhance the education and experiences of its students, faculty, alumni, business partners and communities.
