Peru State Accreditation Review Goes Well

(KLZA)--  Peru, Nebraska- The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) released the results of Peru State College’s “Open Pathway Mid-Cycle Assurance Review.”  The HLC performed the review in the fourth year of Peru State’s ten-year accreditation cycle.  All criteria for the review were met. No follow-up or action was necessary by Peru State or the HLC, which is the best possible result.

Dr. Dan Hanson, president of Peru State College, said, “This is an important step in ensuring the continued academic and fiscal health of the institution.  Not only does it tell us that we’re on track to maintain our more than hundred years of accreditation, but that accreditation is the hallmark of an institution that puts students and the needs of students first.”

Founded in 1867, Peru State has been continuously accredited since 1915, first as a teacher training institution, subsequently as a bachelor's level college and currently as a bachelor's and master's degree granting institution. 

The HLC report says, “The College's last ‘Reaffirmation of Accreditation’ was in 2011-2012 (all criteria were rated as met), with their next ‘Comprehensive Evaluation’ scheduled for 2021-2022.”
