Faculty, staff, students can help NMSU?s accreditation efforts

Faculty, staff and students are invited to provide feedback on NMSU?s Assurance Argument by going to provost.nmsu.edu/aa-feedback/ and downloading the second section ready for review ? Criterion 3. Because sections are stand-alone, additional sections will be posted as they are ready for review.

Instructions for providing feedback and additional supporting evidence are on the website. You may also access the draft document through the Provost?s webpage at http://provost.nmsu.edu/ by clicking on ?Review HLC Assurance Argument? link.

The Assurance Argument (formerly called the self-study) provides evidence that NMSU meets the criteria for re-affirmation of accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), our regional accrediting body.

The Assurance Argument applies to the Las Cruces and Grants campuses only, as the Alamogordo, Carlsbad and Doņa Ana community colleges are each independently accredited by HLC.
