YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University needs your help.
The University has applied for continuing accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. A North Central Association team will visit EMU March 10-11, 2010, to review EMU’s ability to meet the accreditation criteria. The process for reaffirmation of institutional accreditation includes a comprehensive evaluation visit and a review of the public’s comments.
As part of the process, the University is asking for written comments from faculty, staff, students, alumni and the public.
Comments should address substantive matters related to institutional quality or academic programs, and must be signed and include the writer’s name, address and telephone number. All comments will become part of the public record. Comments are due by Friday, Feb. 5, 2010, to the following address:

30 North LaSalle Street, Suite 2400
