Northwestern will undergo its decennial review for institutional re-accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission this spring, culminating with a campus visit April 27 and 28 by an evaluation team representing the commission.


Northwestern has been accredited by the commission since 1913.


Preparations for the review by a seven-member evaluation team from the commission continue to move forward under the direction of the office of Northwestern Provost Daniel Linzer.


As part of the review, members of the public—including alumni—may submit comments regarding Northwestern on the commission’s website, or by writing to:

230 South LaSalle Street, Suite 7-500

Chicago, IL 60604-1411


Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of the institution or its academic programs. All comments must be received by March 27.
