| Advancement Section | Assurance Section |


Message from Walter Nolte, Ph.D.
President of Casper College:

I received notification today (8/31/09) that the Higher Learning Commission's Institutional Actions Council (IAC) accepted the recommendation of the visit team
and the Reader's Panel regarding our application for continued accreditation. The Commission Board of Trustees validated the IAC action on August 28th. Of course,
we have a Progress report on General Education due in 2012 per the visit team's recommendations, but next scheduled full visit is in 2019. Congratulations and
thank you to all who worked so hard on this testament to the quality education we provide our students and community.


Introduction
The Higher Learning Commission (a commission of the North Central Association) evaluates an entire organization and accredits it as a whole. It assesses formal educational activities and also evaluates governance and administration, financial stability, admissions and student personnel services, resources, student academic achievement, organizational effectiveness, and relationships with outside constituencies.
The Commission’s mission statement is, "Serving the common good by assuring and advancing the quality of higher learning."
