Institutional Research, Planning and Assessment
IRPA has published highlights from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) on our website. NSSE collects a very rich variety of information from freshmen and senior students about their perceived levels of engagement and satisfaction at NMU. We have results for 2013, 2017 and 2018.
Contact Paul Peterson for more information.
Faculty members have begun working as lead authors/researchers on NMU's next accreditation document.
Accreditation was reaffirmed last in 2016; then next reaffirmation comprehensive review is scheduled for 2026 at the end of the ten-year accreditation cycle. Our next report to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to demonstrate that Northern continues to meet the Criteria for Accreditation, a mid-cycle institutional accreditation review, will be submitted in Fall 2020. Shaun Thunell (Radiography) and Kathryn Johnson (History) are working with IRPA on the report, called an Assurance Filing. Work this summer begins with an institutional scan against the HLC Criteria for Accreditation.
Contact Dan Cullen for more information.
