2019 Assurance Report
As required by the HLC, KU will create an evidence-based Assurance Argument to demonstrate that we meet the five criteria for accreditation shown below. In the Argument, KU will document how we fulfill each Criterion. A campus committee that includes faculty, students, and staff from across the university will be dedicated to constructing the Assurance Argument. The committee will be formed and launched by the Vice Provost of Academic Affairs in Fall 2017.
