HLC Accreditation Process

The Higher Learning Commission's institutional self-study process is one of the most critical and valuable processes that the university undertakes. CSU-Pueblo is a dynamic institution that will continue to grow and change with the region we serve. We are developing a well-deserved reputation as one of the leading institutions in the state. This recognition has been earned by the continual evaluation of our institution and by applying what we have learned to our daily operations.


The self-study process involves an organized approach to conducting an in-depth analysis of our entire organization. This self-examination will help us to grow into the institution that all of us envision. As an outcome, we will be able to recognize what we are doing well and identify opportunities for improvements.

The HLC Committee is charged with engaging the campus community and its constituencies in an open and inclusive self-study process that achieves the following goals:

Identifies the university's major strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for improvement.

Objectively assesses the institution's structure, governance, policies, procedures, and practices and proposes improvements and future directions.

Creates a report and supporting resources that thoroughly document the university's status within the accreditation criteria guidelines that will allow the Higher Learning Commission's consultant-evaluators to suggest ways the university can enhance its ability to fulfill its mission and attain its goals into the future.
