Saint Xavier University’s accreditation from Higher Learning Commission continues

Chicago (May 15, 2008)—Saint Xavier University has received formal notification from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools that its continued accreditation was approved.

During Nov. 5 to 7, 2007, an HLC eight-member team visited with SXU trustees, faculty, staff, administrators, students and alumni at both the Chicago and Orland Park campuses. The site visit was the culmination of two years of self-evaluation undertaken by the University for the purpose of seeking reaccreditation and continuous quality improvement.

“I wish to congratulate and thank everyone who assisted with the self study process, the report and the site visit of the HLC Team,” said SXU President Judith A. Dwyer, Ph.D.

At its meeting on April 28, 2008, the HLC’s Institutional Actions Council (ICA) voted to continue the accreditation of Saint Xavier University. The Commission Board of Trustees validated the IAC action through its validation process that concluded on May 8, 2008.

“I commend President Dwyer for leading such a thorough process of self-study,” said SXU Board of Trustees Chair Thomas Chomicz.
