Haskell Indian Nations University Maintains Accreditation

Haskell Indian Nations University will maintain the accreditation it has held since 1979.

The university announced Monday the Higher Learning Commission reaffirmed the university’s accreditation after a comprehensive review this year.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports commission members visited the campus in April for the 10-year review. A self-study process also was involved.

The review came after years of turmoil at the school in Lawrence, before current president Venida Chenualt was inaugurated in 2014.

As part of the ongoing process, the university will present an interim report on a revised policy for assigning credit hours in July 2017.

Haskell is open only to members of federally recognized Indian tribes. It offers four bachelor’s degrees and 13 associate’s degrees. It currently has 721 full-time students.
