HU Accreditation Reaffirmed
The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) announced its reaffirmation of accreditation for Hampton University. The reaffirmation continues HU’s accreditation through 2018. SACS announced the reaffirmation at its annual meeting on Dec. 9.
“Hampton University’s faculty, staff and students are doing exemplary work in the areas of academics, research and service,” said HU President Dr. William R. Harvey. “The reaffirmation of accreditation by SACS verifies the Hampton University community’s dedication to continuous growth and improvement.”
The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southern states. The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a key component of the reaffirmation process. SACS expects that each institution is dedicated to enhancing the quality of its programs and services within the context of its mission, resources and capabilities.
The improvement of student learning outcomes in mathematics is the primary goal of HU’s QEP. Through implementation of the QEP, students will learn to apply essential mathematical competencies and financial concepts to real-world problems.
“In keeping with the Hampton University Mission Statement, the ultimate goal of Hampton University’s QEP is to prepare promising students for positions of leadership and service to meet and exceed expectations of the emerging 21st century global economy,” said Harvey.
