HLC Approval of Change of Structure Application

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you that the Board of the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has approved our change of structure application to move to stronger integration. This means that we will move forward with hiring a single president and have Boards of Trustees with common members. This is historic for our institutions and is the beginning of a new relationship and strategic direction for CSB and SJU. Thank you to everyone who worked to make this happen.

Attached is a guide to the proposed changes.


Barb Brandes
Chair, College of Saint Benedict Board of Trustees

Dan McKeown
Chair, Saint John’s University Board of Trustees
