Comprehensive Quality Review
Every eight years, the Higher Learning Commission completes a Comprehensive Quality Review (CQR) visit just before RCTC’s reaffirmation of accreditation. RCTC’s next CQR visit is scheduled for April 2017.
Prior to the CQR visit, the HLC team will review RCTC’s action projects, systems portfolio, and strategy forum initiatives. The CQR team will also make sure that RCTC satisfies all of the HLC’s Criteria for Accreditation. Finally, the HLC team will review all third-party public comments.
During the CQR visit, much needs to be accomplished. The RCTC systems portfolio will be thoroughly reviewed for accuracy. RCTC’s action projects will be discussed. RCTC’s response to the HLC Systems Appraisal feedback will be evaluated. Federal compliance will be verified. Most important, the ongoing teamwork between HLC and RCTC will be renewed.
After the visit, the CQR final report and accompanying RCTC documentation will be used to reaffirm RCTC’s accreditation.
