What is WASC?

Preparatory Review Process

In our Institutional Proposal, HSU committed to center our self-study work upon two areas of critical importance to the campus community:

Theme One: Core Academic Expectations for HSU Students

Theme Two: Ensuring Academic Success for Traditionally Underrepresented Students

Addressing these two HSU-specific Themes will provide a unique focus for our consideration of WASC’s four Standards for Accreditation.

The Institutional Proposal also specified that the campus’s broadly-based work on each of the two Themes be facilitated by its own Action Team. You will find information about each Action Team’s activities through the links below.

Theme 1: Greater HSU Expectations

Theme 2: Making Excellence Inclusive
