The University of Hawaii's flagship campus at Manoa is being reaccredited for the next 10 years, the maximum time possible.
The Western Association of Schools and Colleges notified the school of its accreditation this week.
Accreditors praised the university of gathering and interpreting data on retention and graduation while also developing a new strategic plan.
University of Hawaii at Manoa Chancellor Virginia Henshaw said today the reaccreditation is a milestone for the school that reflects the efforts of hundreds of people generating ideas, writing reports and visiting the WASC teams.
Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Reed Dasenbrock says that very few institutions in the WASC region earn the 10-year reaccreditation, which sends a signal about the quality of the university.
