Westminster President Dr. George B. Forsythe was notified last Friday that the new Westminster at Mesa campus received the accreditation green light to move forward from The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.
At its Feb. 25 meeting, the Institutional Action Council of the Commission approved the new campus, the Mesa Center for Higher Education, where Westminster programs will be offered.
"We are so pleased to receive word that the final action has been taken to allow our new campus in Mesa to move forward," says President Forsythe. "We can now start accepting student applications for the fall."
As is customary with their procedures, the Commission will conduct a required campus evaluation visit within six months of the time instruction starts at the campus.
Classes at the new Westminster campus in Mesa will begin in the fall of 2013. The campus, known as The Mesa Center for Higher Education, is a 53,000 square foot facility, formerly occupied by the Mesa City Court building, located in the heart of downtown Mesa at 245 West 2nd Street. Westminster will share the space, currently under renovation, with Wilkes University.
