University Information



Accommodations for the Disabled

It is the policy of Herzing University to comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of their disability. The ADA provides, in part, that qualified individuals with disabilities shall not be excluded from participating in or be denied the benefits of any program, service, or activity offered by the University. The ADA requires that all programs, services, and activities, when viewed in their entirety, be readily accessible to, and usable by, qualified individuals with disabilities. Students with disabilities who wish to request an accommodation under the ADA should contact the campus ADA Accommodations Coordinator, who serves as the disability coordinator for the campus.

Accreditation

Students should be aware that there are multiple types of accreditation and that their intended entry into their chosen profession could be impacted by these differences. For example, institutional accreditation means all students attending Herzing University are attending an accredited institution.

In addition, there are programmatic accreditation bodies which accredit specific programs (as opposed to the institution). Some states require that specific programs, even at regionally accredited institutions like Herzing University, be programmatically accredited as well. The importance of programmatic accreditation can range from a requirement to sit for licensure exams that are mandatory to work in a field to a requirement to sit for a certification exam that is not required for all employment in the field (but may be slightly to strongly preferred by employers, depending on the market) to a symbol of quality with no impact on any certification or licensure (but which may be slightly or strongly preferred by employers, depending on the market). Therefore, Herzing University has not pursued all forms of programmatic accreditation available, as this is a determination on whether the costs and requirements to do so are worth the value to the student in the respective marketplaces in the estimation of the University. The student should validate whether the specialized accreditation of a specific program is going to fit their career goals for their respective marketplace.

As a result, there is a potential that some states will not permit a student who has completed certain academic programs to become certified, licensed, or sit for a certifying or licensing examination if they graduated from a program that is not programmatically accredited. Herzing University believes in complete and forthright disclosure for each program we offer, so we clearly identify those programs that are programmatically accredited. If a Herzing University program at a specific campus (or one that is offered online) does not state it has programmatic accreditation in writing, students should assume the program does not have programmatic accreditation. Students are responsible for understanding the specific requirements for certification, licensing, and for eligibility to sit for a particular licensing examination of the state or locale in which they want to enter or practice their profession. Herzing University makes no representation, unless explicitly written, that students graduating in a particular program qualify for certification, licensing, or eligibility to sit for a licensing examination in a particular state. For further clarification, students should review the specialized program accreditation/approvals stated in the catalog and read and sign the Accreditation Disclosure for their respective campus. Students may seek confirmation of programmatic accreditation by consulting the website of the accrediting body.

Specialized Program Accreditations, Certifications, and Licensures by Campus

Herzing University also holds programmatic accreditations or approvals for selected programs at selected locations. Not all programs require specialized programmatic accreditation, and some new programs must be in operation for a period of time before specialized accreditation can be obtained. Specialized programmatic accreditation may be required for graduates to be eligible to take some licensure or certification examinations. Unless this catalog specifically and unequivocally states that a particular program at a particular campus (including Herzing Online) is programmatically accredited and qualifies a student for licensing, certification, or to be eligible to sit for a licensing examination, students should conclude the program offered on the campus they are enrolled at is not programmatically accredited. Students should independently investigate the specific licensing requirements for their program in the specific state or locale for which they anticipate seeking employment.

Core Values: P.R.I.C.E. of Success

Herzing University’s educational and organizational philosophy was founded on core values that constitute the Herzing culture. These values are essential not only for personal development, but are also the foundation for a successful, meaningful career. These core values; professionalism, respect, integrity, caring, and engagement are encompassed in a framework called “P.R.I.C.E. of Success.” In order to help each student develop and strengthen these qualities, they have been incorporated into the learning environment. Students are expected to exhibit these behaviors and attributes in all interactions, inside and outside of the classroom. Students who apply themselves and embody the P.R.I.C.E. of Success characteristics will more likely reach their full human potential.

These behaviors and attributes are also the foundation of our internal culture. Employees are expected to exhibit these qualities in their service to students and other daily functions. In doing so, we are building a culture that nurtures personal growth and potential. We lead by example for our students, enabling us to coach and mentor students in their own development of these behaviors and attributes.

Herzing University Graduate Learning Characteristics

A Professional Theory-to-Practice Model of Graduate Education

Herzing University’s graduate programs provide appropriate learning for those seeking advanced degrees in professional disciplines. Programmatic outcomes as well as course objectives follow from four general characteristics of graduate learning in Herzing University programs, which are:

  1. Advanced study of the discipline
  2. Scholarship of professional practice
  3. Developing thought-leadership
  4. Professional service and commitment

All Herzing University graduate certificate and degree programs include elements of these four characteristics. Graduate course learning activities help ensure that, at program completion, all four characteristics were further developed.

  1. Advanced Study of the Discipline
    • Advanced study integrates the historical and philosophical foundations of the profession to current policies and practice.
    • Advanced study incorporates the systematic investigation of primary source material as well as scholarly journals and professional publications for inquiry into the discipline
    • Advanced study includes further development of discipline-specific knowledge and skills.
    • Advanced study focuses on current trends and issues: their causes and possible solutions
  2. Scholarship of Professional Practice
    • Applied scholarship, like traditional scholarship, employs established research methods in planned experimentation.
    • Applied scholarship, like traditional scholarship, promotes the freedom of expression through the pursuit of truth, wherever the evidence may lead.
    • Applied scholarship, like traditional scholarship, requires that both students and faculty assure the integrity of scholarly research and professional practice and the ethical use information resources.
    • Applied scholarship focuses on quality improvement in professional policy, systems, and practice.
    • Applied scholarship uses evidence-based methodologies to create reasoned solutions to complex workplace problems.
  3. Developing Thought-Leadership
    • Coursework provides a platform for developing and proposing evidence-based revisions in policy, systems and/or practice as emerging scholars in the profession
    • Students and faculty collaborate as current practitioners.
    • Dialogue among students and faculty critique the current policies and practices of the discipline.
    • Coursework uses learning paradigms that guide self-directed and faculty-facilitated learning appropriate for student professionals.
  4. Service and Commitment to the Profession
    • Students identify areas within the profession that require additional research and analysis.
    • Students analyze professional trends and issues and contribute to the advancement of their profession.
    • Students use professional standards to establish a set of professional values.
    • Students identify professional associations that participate in furthering the profession and/or professional practice and standards.

Library Resources and Services

Herzing University students have 24/7 access to electronic library resources including professional and academic journals, magazines, images, e-books, newspapers, and multimedia via an Internet connection at home or on-campus.

Herzing students have access to virtual library support services over 68 hours per week. A team of librarians is available to help students identify appropriate library resources to complete research projects. Hours of availability for the virtual reference services are Monday through Friday from 8 am to 8 pm CT; and Sunday from Noon to 8 pm CT. Librarians also check for email and voice messages on Saturday afternoons and respond after 2 pm.

Librarians may be reached by telephone, email and/or chat.

Additionally, campuses maintain supplemental physical library collections that may include books, periodicals, and multimedia. The Learning Commons serves as the location for the library collection and computer workstations. Hours of operation vary by campus. Please check your local campus for a posting of the Learning Commons hours.

Mission

It is the mission of Herzing University to provide high-quality undergraduate and graduate degrees and diploma programs to prepare a diverse and geographically distributed student population to meet the needs of employers in technology, business, healthcare, design, and public safety. Career-oriented degree programs include a complementary and integrated general education curriculum established to stimulate students’ intellectual growth, to contribute to their personal development, and to enhance their potential for career advancement.

Other States (Distance/Online Education)

Herzing Online has made a good-faith effort to follow each individual state’s regulations concerning offering distance educational programs in that respective state. Students should investigate and ensure that the program they desire, if offered in a distance/online format, meets the requirements of the profession in their state. Individuals considering the Master of Science program-particularly the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) concentration-should be aware that state requirements for availability of required clinical courses and eligibility to apply for licensure as a family nurse practitioner vary from state to state. Applicants should check with their applicable state board of nursing before enrolling in any graduate nursing program. Herzing University makes every effort to ensure it is in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and accreditation standards. Education on the State level is regulated by each of the 50 States plus U.S. Territories. Therefore, it is possible that Herzing University has the authority to offer degrees to students through license, exemption or non-regulation by one State that does not exist in another State. Students who are admitted into Herzing University while living in one State should, prior to relocating to another State, inquire from Herzing University as to whether or not it is authorized (license, exemption or non-regulation) to offer the degree program to students in their new State. Failure to assure whether or not Herzing University has the ability to offer degrees in the State of a student’s new residency could result in the student having to be dismissed by the University as may be required by law. For additional information, e-mail your questions to states@herzing.edu.

Not all programs are available in all states. Contact the Online Admissions Office for program availability at onl-info@herzing.edu or (866) 508-0748.

Program Offerings and Disclosure

Not all of Herzing University’s programs are offered at all campuses. Further, there are substantial differences in some programs from campus to campus including, but not limited to, programmatic accreditation, a pathway to licensing and other program characteristics. Students should independently investigate and ensure that the program they desire is offered on the campus they intend to enroll in and has the instructional delivery format and potential outcome they desire. Students should rely only on the written official catalog for accurate information.

Research Support – Institutional Research Board (IRB)

Protection of Human Research Subjects and their Information

U.S. federal laws require all organizations that conduct human research or serve as sites for human research to be responsible for research oversight and the protection of all human subjects and their private information. This oversight is provided by Herzing University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB), which includes membership of both scientific and non-scientific researchers, along with at least one community member.

Herzing University’s IRB is charged with providing oversight and support for all research conducted at the university or under guidance or other support from university students, faculty, and staff; and where human subjects and/or their information is a part of the research protocol. The IRB uses principles established in the Belmont Report, which established ethical guidelines for the protection of human subjects in research studies. The university’s IRB processes have been established in order to protect the rights, privacy, and welfare of all human research subjects and their private information.

By policy, all research, whether or not that research is part of a course or program requirement that involves human subjects or their private information and is conducted at Herzing University, or with University support at any external site, must be submitted to the IRB for approval prior to commencement of any such research. Herzing University’s IRB oversight extends to anyone, regardless of affiliation, who wishes to conduct research at any University location or with any set or subset of Herzing University students, faculty or staff or their private information.

The Herzing University IRB may approve, modify, or discontinue a research protocol because of the risk to human subjects or their information. By providing this support, the IRB also serves to protect the researcher(s) by assuring that the protocol addresses important protections before the research begins as well as continued oversight during the data collection phase of the study. Full information on submitting proposed studies to Herzing University’s IRB may be found on the Herzing University website at www.herzing.edu.

State Approvals

Herzing University is authorized to offer graduate educational programs in the various states in which it operates by the following state boards, commissions, and departments, or otherwise pursuant to applicable state law. Not all programs are available in all states. Students should not confuse permission for Herzing University to operate in a state or educate students from a particular state online with special or programmatic approvals that may be required or preferred to work in a given field in some states. Students should independently investigate and ensure that the program they desire is offered on the campus they intend to enroll in via the desired format and with the potential outcome they desire. Students should rely only on the written information provided in the academic catalog and not on oral or unofficial representations or other documents. The fact that a program is currently offered on a campus does not ensure, nor does Herzing University guarantee, that all courses will always be available on that campus in the specific format the student selected; however, a student will always be provided with a path to completion, despite the potential change in format of course offerings.

Further information may be obtained by contacting the following state approving commissions, boards, offices, and departments.

University History

Herzing University had its beginning in 1965 when it started as a computer training institute in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1970 the name was changed to Herzing Institute, and the organization began to grow through the acquisition of other schools. These included the Wisconsin School of Electronics in Madison, Wisconsin, which has a history dating back to 1948. Later, the Milwaukee location was closed in favor of the Madison location, but the system headquarters has remained in Milwaukee. The name of the school was changed to Herzing College in 1996, and the institution has grown to eleven campuses plus Herzing Online. With the addition of graduate programs, the name was changed to Herzing University in 2009.

Vision

The vision of Herzing University is to be the lifelong learning partner for its students, employers, and communities in optimizing their economic and human potential.
