• About the DLC

    • Background/History

      To become more fully compliant to Higher Learning Commission best practices for distance learning, and to provide appropriate institution-wide oversight of existing and proposed degree and certificate programs, the university established a Distance Learning Council (DLC) in 2007. Provost Gregg Kvistad attended the first meeting on Monday, April 9, 2007. Noting that some institutions are required to seek approval from the North Central Association Higher Learning Commission (HLC) for each new distance learning program they propose to offer, the provost described the review process—written proposal and site visit—which the University of Denver had undertaken to obtain “no prior approval” status with the HLC. 

      The original members of the DLC were nominated by the deans and three of the members were drawn from University College, at that time, the sole provider of complete distance degree programs. The DLC meets quarterly.
