UW-Sheboygan Receives Continuing Accreditation
The University of Wisconsin Colleges, the parent organization of UW-Sheboygan, has received continuing accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
The HLC is an independent organization which accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region. The accreditation process assures students that the institution meets generally accepted standards. The HLC assesses all member colleges and universities on a regular basis.
Dr. Jackie Joseph-Silverstein, CEO/dean of UW-Sheboygan, said the continuing accreditation came after a rigorous examination and is a “strong endorsement of the quality of a UW-Sheboygan education.” HLC evaluators visited UW-Sheboygan in November 2012, and met with faculty, staff, students, administrators and other stakeholders.
The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan is a campus of the University of Wisconsin Colleges, a unit of the University of Wisconsin System comprised of 13 campuses and UW Colleges Online, that offers an Associate of Arts and Science degree and a single Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree, and prepares students of all ages and backgrounds for baccalaureate and professional programs.
