Horizon University (Horizon U), based in Indianapolis, has achieved a ten-year extension of accreditation from the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), a national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education. ABHE’s Commission on Accreditation wrote on 3/6/19 that Horizon University, "substantially complies with ABHE’s Institutional Accreditation Standards, including the appropriateness, rigor, and achievement of its stated student learning outcomes."
Randall Dodge, PhD, JD and President of Horizon University commented on the positive impact of ABHE’s assessment process and robust standards, "Partnering with ABHE helps us achieve Horizon University’s dual goal for our students -- to undergo a heart transformation through a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and a renewing of the mind through high academic standards."
Involved from the start in the multi-year process toward reaffirming accreditation, Bill Goodrich, Horizon U Chairman of the Board reflects, "The Horizon U faculty and administration team has worked so hard the past few years toward this reaffirmation. This included a rigorous self-study, systematic assessments, written reports and two onsite visits from ABHE. We also expanded our library and broadened the scope of degreed programs, even while moving our school headquarters from San Diego to Indianapolis in 2017."
