Case Western Reserve has decided to pursue a customized accreditation process, selecting four topics for special attention:
interdivisional collaborations and partnerships;
faculty engagement, motivation, and commitment;
student development - undergraduate;
student development - graduate and professional.
The customized process is a special option offered by the Higher Learning Commission that allows an institution to focus on issues that are important to its mission, vision, and goals. Case will be also required to show that it meets the Commission's five criteria for accreditation.
