HLC Continues the Accreditation of Saint Paul

In September 2022, Saint Paul School of Theology hosted a review team from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), one of Saint Paul’s primary accreditation agencies, as part of the Seminary’s regular reaffirmation cycle.  On November 18, 2022, the Higher Learning Commission notified Saint Paul that the Commission “continued the accreditation of Saint Paul School of Theology with the next Reaffirmation of Accreditation in 2028-2029.”  HLC makes no requests for any follow up or monitoring reports.  President Neil Blair commented, “This extremely positive outcome reflects years of effort by faculty, staff, and trustees. HLC’s decision recognizes the quality of all these efforts.”  In recent years, the Saint Paul Board of Trustees revised its policies and procedures to accord with best governing practices.  The faculty designed and implemented a rigorous program of assessment and evaluation that utilizes data to improve our educational programs.  Saint Paul also benefits from robust financial health and a well-qualified and capable staff that oversees the Seminary’s administrative functions.  These factors combine to make Saint Paul a vibrant institution that adheres to its mission and strives to serve its students.
