HLC Blog

Join the conversation!

Anyone can chime in! If you’d like to contribute, please contact Keith Tucker at

If the real estate mantra is “location, location, location,” the HLC mantra seems “document, document, document.” This theme surfaced repeatedly and underscores the importance of making sure that we are not only doing the right thing, but documenting what we are doing. Any activities that may be relevant to our ongoing and future accreditation efforts should be carefully and systematically documented. This will allow us to demonstrate, clearly and thoroughly, at any time, that we are in full compliance with HLC expectations.
