Higher Learning Commission Report

In March, Higher Learning Commission (HLC) reviewers visited campus to ensure that UW-Stout meets the criteria for accreditation. The resulting HLC Comprehensive Evaluation Report is now available. The report confirms that UW-Stout continues to meet all criteria.

Although the HLC report is overwhelmingly positive, it does include some recommendations for improvement. Those recommendations will be shared with the campus community and reviewed by the Strategic Planning Group in an effort to make UW-Stout an even better place to work and learn.


SPG update: Action Plans for 2016-17

UW-Stout will have 10 university action plans for 2016-17.  All of the action plans from 2015-16 will be continuing, and a new action plan on fundraising will be added.  Additionally, the ASA targeted projects and Academic Plan have been combined into one action plan.  At its meeting on June 6, 2016, the Strategic Planning Group reviewed the proposed action plans for 2016-17 and recommended approval of all of them, with some modifications.  Within the next couple of weeks, action plan leaders will receive memos from the Chancellor charging them to implement the items in the action plans.  Once approved, the action plans will be available on the SPG website under 2016-17 Action Plans.
