Accreditation

2017 Change in Organization

On February 22, 2018, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Board of Trustees approved the extension of accreditation under the Commission’s policy on Change of Control, Structure, or Organization for the Indiana LSA recommended reorganization of IPFW.  The recommendation, approved by the respective Boards of Trustees of Purdue University and Indiana University, terminated the operating agreement between Indiana University and Purdue University and established Purdue University Fort Wayne as an entity solely managed and operated by Purdue University.  All academic programs except for the Health Sciences Programs (Nursing, Medical Imaging, and Dental Hygiene) are now consolidated as Purdue University Fort Wayne Programs.  Health Sciences Programs continue to be offered on the Fort Wayne Campus which serves as an additional location for Indiana University –Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).

A requirement of the extension of accreditation is a six month focused visit.  In advance of the visit, Purdue University Fort Wayne submitted a Focused Visit Report which is currently being reviewed by a visiting team (The Team) selected by the Higher Learning Commission.  The Team will conduct a site visit on September 10-11, 2018.
