Peer Reviewer Application

Peer review in accreditation is based on the fundamental assumption that quality in higher education is best served through a process that enables peers of the institution, informed by standards created and applied by professionals in higher education, to make the judgments essential to assuring and advancing the quality of higher learning.

HLC relies upon the work of peer reviewers for its accrediting activities. These volunteers generously share their knowledge and experience to assure and advance institutional quality. Learn more about what it means to be a peer reviewer.

HLC maintains a Peer Corps of approximately 1,600 faculty and administrators from institutions within the 19-state North Central region. The peer reviewers play an essential role in all stages of the accreditation process. They are responsible for assuring that an institution is complying with the accreditation criteria, as well as for helping an institution advance within the context of its own mission.
