The Higher Learning Commission

Washburn University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The HLC is an independent corporation and one of two commission members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), which was founded in 1895 as one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States. The Higher Learning Commission accredits, and thereby grants membership in the Commission and in the North Central Association, degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region.

Internally, we partner with offices throughout Washburn University to provide clean, timely, and actionable data and analyses to help the University serve its strategic needs, especially as they relate to helping students succeed. Here's some of what we do:

  • Research factors related to student success
  • Forecast enrollment and research factors related to student enrollment
  • Create automated data reports in Argos
  • Create longitudinal and analytic dashboards in Washburn's Data Warehouse
  • Write routine reports that help the University understand itself and how it has changed over time.

Externally, we provide data and information to regulatory agencies like the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) – visit the IPEDS Data Center – and the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) – visit the Kansas Higher Education Statistics dashboard.
