The year 2016 was a remarkable year at Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences. Guided by its principles and values of professionalism, respect, integrity and respecting high academic standards, the College reached a number of important milestones. First, the College successfully completed its reaccreditation process with the Higher Learning Commission – we met all of the Commission’s criteria for accreditation and the Commission continued the accreditation of the College with the next reaffirmation of accreditation in 2025-2026.
