Higher Learning Commission Reaccredits Adler University Through 2032

After a comprehensive evaluation, Adler University has officially received reaccreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) through 2031-2032. They’ve continuously provided accreditation to Adler since 1978.

HLC grants accreditation through a peer-review process by approximately 2,000 higher education leaders serving as reviewers. As the institutional accrediting agency for degree-granting colleges and universities in the United States, their process validates the quality of an institution through an evaluation of multiple factors, including its mission, academic offerings, governance, and administration.

Adler’s faculty, staff, and students strive to uphold and live out the University’s mission of graduating socially responsible practitioners, engaging partner communities, and advancing social justice every day. By being an accredited university, these students have the assurance they’re enrolled in programs meeting or exceeding the highest standards as determined by experts in the educational field.

HLC also provides accreditation to ensure quality by verifying an institution meets threshold requirements and is engaged in continuous improvement. At Adler, these improvements can be seen in the University’s strategic goals and commitment to supporting students, faculty, and staff. It is also reflected in the established multi-year antiracist curriculum transformation and advanced diversity and inclusion efforts across all three campuses.

This accomplishment reflects the hard work of everyone across the Adler community who contributed to the goals set forth. The University looks forward to the next ten years as it continues to grow and make lasting impacts on the world around us.
