CSU Global’s 2015 Commencement Ceremony Sets a New Standard
More than 700 students walked in this month’s Commencement Ceremony. That’s a record for CSU Global, and it wasn’t the only way in which the university broke ground. For the first time ever, Commencement was streamed live over the internet for students and their families who couldn’t attend in person, and a dedicated hashtag allowed viewers all over the world to share words of support.
The event was a major success, and we encourage you to read more about it on our blog here.

June Update: Reaffirmation of Accreditation
Colorado State University Global received its initial regional accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) in June 2011. This initial accreditation was for five years and must be reaffirmed during the 2015-2016 academic year.
In May 2014, CSU Global began the process of reaffirming our accreditation through an 18-month reflective process that culminates in a comprehensive visit in February 2016. We are well into this process, and are beginning to write our assurance argument which details how we meet the five HLC Criteria for Accreditation:
In other important news our review team for the February visit has been assigned by the Higher Learning Commission, and we have begun a major communication campaign for our faculty that has so far included an overview of the accreditation process; our mission, vision, and core values; and how we assess student learning.
We have also conducted extensive training with our Program Coordinators at our commencement retreat in June, and will do so again at our fall retreat in October. Our staff communication plan began at this month’s all-staff meeting, and we will continue training and development up to the time of the visit.
