Preparing for the Fall 2022 Re-Affirmation of Accreditation Visit
HLC/BGSU Marketing plan
It is important that our entire community of faculty, students, staff and board members are engaged in the process and prepared for the HLC visit.
With feedback from ASC members, we have developed an accreditation marketing plan and will be updating this webpage with announcements, news, and other accreditation-related events as they roll out all the way to October 17-18, 2022. Inspired by the Falcons, our accreditation marketing theme is: “Let’s Fly Accreditation Forward”.

Student Opinion Survey Almost Here!!
Dear BGSU Students:
The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is the institutional accreditor of BGSU. To remain accredited with HLC, BGSU must undergo a comprehensive evaluation every ten year. BGSU staff is developing the reports for this evaluation which will culminate with an on-site peer review visit October 17-18, 2022. As part of the comprehensive evaluation, the HLC conducts an online survey of BGSU’s student body. The survey is intended to give students an opportunity to participate in the evaluation process and to help peer reviewers identify questions they might ask while on site.
On April 4th, 2022, you will receive an email invitation to participate in this short survey. You will have until April 13th, 2022 to complete it. The answers on this survey are anonymous. Unless you include identifying information in your comments, the HLC and BGSU will not have access to your identity. Your participation is completely voluntary. The results of the survey will be available for the peer reviewers and BGSU administration September 2022.
Mark your calendar and don’t forget to check your email on April 4th!
Students, Faculty, and Staff Open Forum Sample Questions
Below are sample questions the Review Team may ask at Open Forum during their visit. We provide them to help respective groups prepare.
Accreditation 101: Bridge Course
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) has developed a Bridge course intended to provide a global understanding of the Higher Learning Commission (HLC)'s Accreditation Criteria and Evidence and their implications for BGSU in preparing for its Fall 2022 re-affirmation of accreditation comprehensive visit. It covers key accreditation topics, processes and pitfalls, serves to address frequently asked questions, and provides self-paced accreditation knowledge evaluation. A desired outcome for this course is that it equips learners with adequate accreditation proficiency should they choose to interface with the HLC reviewers during the visit. The course is subject to Single Sign On (SSO) access. To begin the course, click here.
