The Robert B. Miller College is seeking input from the general public as part of its preparation for a comprehensive evaluation aimed at continuing its accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association (NCA) of Colleges and Schools.
The College is poised for growth and change as it continue to move forward. The current self-study process began in June 2010 in preparation for a formal accreditation site visit February 11-13, 2013 by a NCA HLC team made up of people from the College’s peer institutions.
The public is invited to submit online comments regarding the College directly to the HLC. Comments also may be sent by mail to Public Comment on The Robert B. Miller College:
