HLC Leadership Team


Regional accreditation is a campus-wide effort and individuals from all areas of the institution work hard to ensure that we maintain our HLC accreditation. In order to provide leadership for our upcoming reaccreditation, the HLC Leadership Accreditation Team was formed in Spring 2010. This team consists of 10 members, representing a broad cross-section of the institution. The team is chaired by Dr. Jan Smith, Professor of Psychology and Counseling.
