Loyola University Chicago

Open Pathways Process


Since late 2010, Loyola University Chicago has participated in the Open Pathway process for maintaining accreditation. In addition to quality improvement and quality assurance components this pathway affords institutions the opportunity to pursue Quality Initiative Projects that reflect the aspirations of the institution.

As a Pioneer Institution, Loyola University Chicago had the opportunity to pilot this pathway and shape the current 10-year Open Pathway Process. We are now engaged in a new Open Pathway 10-year cycle, as we head toward re-accreditation in 2024-25.

Our current accreditation status was affirmed as a result of the 2014-15 Comprehensive Evaluation Process.
