Higher Learning Commission Accreditation and Accountability Committee (HLCAAC)

In Fall 2016, the Systems Portfolio Committee was renamed the Higher Learning Commission Accreditation and Accountability Committee (HLCAAC), in order to reflect Kent State's transition to the Open Pathway of accreditation.
