Missouri Baptist University will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit on Sept. 26, 2016, by a team representing the Higher Learning Commission. The Commission is one of six accrediting agencies in the United States that provides institutional accreditation on a regional basis. It will review the University’s ongoing ability to meet the Commission’s Criteria for Accreditation. The University has been accredited by the Commission since 1978.
MBU has engaged in a process of self-study to address the Commission’s Criteria for Accreditation. The Commission’s team will visit the institution to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate before recommending to the Commission a continuing status for the University. Following a review process, the Commission itself will determine the University’s status.
The public is invited to submit comments regarding the University directly to:
