KCUMB Earns HLC Accreditation Reaffirmation

I am proud to share with you that KCUMB recently received notice of accreditation reaffirmation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association. This is the outcome from the positive site visit that took place Sept. 23-25, 2013. The Higher Learning Commission is an independent organization that is responsible for regional accreditation of universities and colleges in the North Central region of the United States.

The HLC reported that KCUMB met all standards, no findings were identified, and we continue with full accreditation until our next inspection cycle during the 2023-2024 academic year. We could not have had a better outcome from this process.

Our faculty, staff and administration did a superb job preparing for this inspection. More importantly, the self-study process helped us to develop new methods and procedures that will better serve our institution going forward.

KCUMB's collaborative spirit made this accreditation process a success and will help us reach our primary vision of becoming the most student-focused medical university in the nation.
