HLC Comprehensive Evaluation

Grace College and Seminary’s 2023 Comprehensive Evaluation

Grace is preparing to host a Year 4 Comprehensive Evaluation on February 27-28, 2023 as part of the Standard Pathway accreditation process with HLC. A team of peer reviewers will conduct an Assurance Review to determine whether Grace continues to meet HLC’s criteria for accreditation and subcomponents. 

The team will review an Assurance Argument that addresses a revised set of criteria and demonstrates areas of improvement since the 2019 HLC Comprehensive Evaluation. The Assurance Argument consists of a series of arguments which addresses the criteria for accreditation with evidence to support the arguments.  

HLC will evaluate Grace in terms of its mission and HLC’s five criteria and assumed practices. In its evaluation process, HLC will consider educational activities, governance and administration, financial stability, admissions, student services, institutional resources, student learning, institutional effectiveness, and institutional relationships with internal and external constituencies.
