DeVry University announced today it has received Reaffirmation of
Accreditation by the Institutional Actions Council (IAC) of The Higher
Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and
Schools (NCA). The IAC action continues the accreditation of DeVry University,
DeVry College of New York, and the university’s Keller Graduate School of
Management. The next comprehensive evaluation is scheduled for 2019-20,
without focused reports or additional evaluations required.

“Since its inception in 1931, DeVry University has maintained a strong
commitment to delivering a quality education through continuous improvement,”
said Richard L. Rodriguez, chairman, DeVry University Board of Trustees.
“During a time when academic effectiveness is being challenged, DeVry
University is proud to earn reaccreditation – not only as a validation of our
mission, but also as a testament to our integrity as a university and
commitment to our students. At DeVry University, we recognize accreditation is
a continuing relationship between the organization and the Higher Learning
Commission, and we are committed to the practice of continuous improvement on
a daily basis.”

The HLC is an independent agency that accredits degree-granting post-secondary
educational institutions in the North Central region. It is recognized by both
the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education
Accreditation, and accredits approximately one-third of U.S. regionally
accredited public and private institutions. It is one of two commission
members of the NCA, representing one of six institutional accrediting regions
in the United States. HLC is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a
recognized accrediting body and is one of the six regional agencies that
accredit U.S. colleges and universities at the institutional level.

Re-accreditation comes on the heels of DeVry University’s recent issuance of
its Academic Annual Report, which provides an overview of academic initiatives
and progress for the 2011- 2012 academic year, as well as details on the
university’s commitment to continuous improvement of academic quality. More
