Several UAM students met with two representatives from the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools accreditation team on campus last week, during part of the extensive reaccrediting process in which UAM was required to participate.
Students offered the evaluators information related to student services, academic programs and a variety of other student-oriented issues. The team will use the information gathered to offer suggestions to the UAM administration as to how the university might better meet current student needs.
Fahm said she believes this is one of the most influential parts of the North Central Accreditation process.
“The students are so connected with the campus,” Fahm said. “Their insights are very valuable and beneficial to both our team and to members of the university administration.”
Junior political science major Matt Baumgarten said he also believes the question and answer session proved beneficial.
“I’m glad the students were able to meet with the team and voice their opinions about a variety of student-related issues,” Baumgarten said. “I’m glad to know that my opinion matters.”
