There are a couple of ways to send comments to the HLC prior to their site visit at the end of February if you wish to.
Professor Michael Dowd announced at Faculty Senate and at LLSS Council that an e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) has been created to which faculty, staff, or students could send comments which he would then forward to the Higher Learning Commission. If the commenter wishes to remain anonymous to the HLC, Dr. Dowd will forward the comment under his name with no identifying information about the individual who sent him the e-mail. So, if an individual doesn’t want his or her identity known to the HLC, this service is available. That e-mail address again – email@example.com
The HLC has a page for “third-party” comments that has a form that can be filled out and submitted online. It also has the snail-mail address. The HLC comments page is http://www.ncahlc.org/Information-for-the-Public/third-party-comment.html
The HLC also has a separate page with instructions on how to send complaints about an institution at
Finally, a reminder that information about the HLC review of UT, including the latest draft of the Self-Study is available online at http://www.utoledo.edu/accreditation/
