Accreditation and assessment each play a critical role in Heidelberg’s success as an institution of higher education. Accreditation refers to an externally bestowed designation that verifies the quality of a college or university. Assessment, on the other hand, refers to evaluations and self-studies we conduct internally to examine and improve all aspects of the Heidelberg experience. Taken together, accreditation and assessment ensure the quality—and value—of a Heidelberg degree, now and into the future
On May 13, 2013, Adam Hine, ’13, drove straight from Heidelberg’s commencement ceremony in Tiffin to his home in Cleveland because he wanted to take a photo of himself in his cap and gown on the street where he grew up.

Dr. Bill Kimberlin, MAC ’98, has stared pure evil in the face. A lot. And he lived to write about it. Earlier this year, Kimberlin’s book, Watch Me Die, was published. It is a first-of-its-kind, first-hand account of Ohio’s death row and the state’s execution process. For the book, Kimberlin was invited behind prison walls and into the lives of death-row inmates – some of “the worst of the worst.” No bars. No shackles. No chains. And nothing like television.
Jill Lanzinger, ’01, knew at a young age she wanted to pursue a career in law, and she enrolled at Heidelberg with that goal. While the sum of her Heidelberg education prepared her well, she recognizes the impact one professor and one skill can have on a career.
Dr. Rick Mahon, ’05, always knew an office setting wasn’t for him. That knowledge combined with an inclination to help people led him to pursue a career in medicine.
“I love being in a hospital and moving around,” Mahon says. “I like the chaos to an extent.”
