More than 100 members of the CMU community worked from May, 2011 to November, 2013 to research all aspects of Colorado Mesa University and to present the results in the Self-Study Report posted below. Writers of the report have worked to communicate to the CMU community and to the Higher Learning Commission an accurate picture of Colorado Mesa University. Specifically, the report provides evidence that CMU meets the criteria for accreditation established by the Higher Learning Commission.

The Self-Study Report was submitted in September 2013 to the HLC peer evaluation team in preparation for their November 2013 campus visit. The visit lead to re-affirmation of CMU's accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission.
