Event was held September 1, 2009 in the K-State Alumni Associate Ballroom.  The purpose of the retreat was to provide a preliminary overview and orientation for the Accreditation Self-Study and Site Visit by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) scheduled for the 2011-2012 Academic Year.  The retreat focused on helping a broad group of individuals across campus become more familiar with the accreditation process, and its importance to K-State.
