Comprehensive Quality Review

Comprehensive Quality Review

As part of the Higher Learning Commission's comprehensive evaluation to verify institutions meet the Criteria for Accreditation, the HLC has the option to conduct a Comprehensive Quality Review (CQR) in year four of the eight-year accreditation cycle. M State's last CQR was April 23 - 25, 2018.

During the CQR, the peer review team conducted an on-site visit to review the following:

A CQR visit may also include:

  • Meetings with students, faculty, staff and other key stakeholders to determine if criteria for accreditation are being met and continuous improvement principles are incorporated into daily work and decision making
  • On-site visits to each campus
  • Student opinion surveys
