Release Time for ‘UW Accredi-Carnival’ Sept. 26

September 16, 2019

University of Wyoming employees have been granted one hour of release time to learn more about the Higher Learning Commission accreditation process Thursday, Sept. 26.

The “UW Accredi-Carnival” is from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Ballroom. Games, prizes, entertainment and food will be provided in a “fun carnival-style atmosphere,” according to sponsors from Academic Affairs.

Acting President Neil Theobald approved the granting of release time for UW employees. The scheduling of release time should be a collaborative discussion between employee and supervisor to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the unit.

The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is UW’s regional accreditation agency. It accredits degree-granting institutions of higher education across 19 states in the North Central region of the United States.

Institutions that HLC accredits are evaluated against HLC’s Criteria for Accreditation, a set of standards that institutions must meet to receive and maintain accredited status. Accreditation from HLC allows UW to offer academic programs that are eligible for Title IV funding -- federal financial aid.

“This means our regional accreditation is absolutely critical to our ability to offer robust, rigorous academic programs to students,” says Anne Alexander, UW’s HLC accreditation liaison officer.

For more information, call the UW Academic Affairs office at 766-4286.
