This story first appeared in the fall 2019 edition of Arbor Light, the official magazine of Concordia Ann Arbor.

The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has reaffirmed Concordia University’s accreditation. This is the first accreditation approval received since CUAA’s 2013 merge with CUW. A major aspect of the evaluation was a comprehensive report in which Concordia demonstrated, using evidence, that it meets the standards of high quality set forth by the HLC. After reading the report, review teams from the HLC visited both campuses in spring 2019. Reviewers commented specifically on the evidence of strong growth of the two universities into one institution. Concordia received the maximum number of years for this cycle of accreditation and will next seek reaffirmation in the 2028–29 school year.
