Reaccreditation self study information posted online

Draft chapters of the UNL self study - to be used in the reaccreditation process with the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools - are being posted online for review and feedback by faculty, staff and students.

Jim O'Hanlon, a professor in the College of Education and Human Sciences and coordinator of the reaccreditation process, said the first chapter, "Who We Are as a University," is online, with the second, "Developments at UNL Since 1997," to be posted soon.

"This is the first step in getting people on campus acquainted with what the self study says," O'Hanlon said. "We hope a review by faculty, staff and students will give us ideas for additional ways to make the points we are trying to make. And, we also want people to check for any errors of fact."

The chapters are available for review at

O'Hanlon said the self study is on track to be completed by the first part of July. He also said a virtual resource room is being created online. The resource room will allow the North Central accreditation team to review self-study related documents before they come to campus in November. O'Hanlon said it also will allow the print version of the self study to tell "more of the UNL story."
