Things To Do
  1. Work on articles that need cleanup. A randomized short list is here

  3. Create a page for each and every university and college and add {{infobox University}} for it. See the missing list for those institutions still awaiting articles.
  4. Place {{WikiProject Higher education}} on every related talk page.
  5. Ensure all articles, including Featured articles, are consistent with the article guidelines.

Requesting an assessment or re-assessmentEdit

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below. If you are interested in more extensive comments on an article, please request a peer review instead.

  1. Could someone reassess University of Colorado Denver? It's currently "C-class", but I think it deserves a higher rating now. Thank you! Bobfreshwater (talk) 00:34, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
  2. Could someone reassess Northampton Community College? It's currently a "Start Class," but has since been updated and new information has been added. Thank you. SamSpartan (talk) 17 February 2010 (UTC)
  3. Cleary University assessment request, article has never been evaluated
  4. Could someone please reassess University of Arkansas in light of recent and major modifications to the page? If it does not warrant an improved rating, could you please let me know what steps need to be taken to reach an improved rating? Thank you. mmcnell (talk) 11:36, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
  5. Could someone reassess University of Texas at Dallas. It shows a "Start Class" but has been updated. Thanks.Stan9999 (talk) 00:51, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
  6. Could someone reassess Palacký University, Olomouc. It was updated and double enlarged since the last assessment. After assessment, please leave there at talk page hints what else might be missing in the article. Cimmerian praetor (talk)
  7. Could someone please have a look over University of the Sunshine Coast. It is currently start-class, but has grown substantially since the last assessment 18 months or so ago. ANy suggestions to improve the article are of course welcomed. Cheers 1Audit1 (talk) 00:06, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
  8. Can some one please re assess University of Gujrat. It is stub class but I have made extensive changes. Feedback would be helpful. Regards, Arslanarshad (talk) 16:43, 25 November 2010 (UTC)
  9. A lot of work has been done to Eastern Michigan University I was wondering if I could get a reassessment request for the page. In addition any advice left on the talk page would be greatly appreciated. Pwojdacz (talk) 04:35, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
  10. Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania The Haz talk 03:32, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
  11. University of Antioquia. It's rated right now as Stub-Class. I think I did a decent cleanup. Wfox (talk) 20:50, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
  12. Appalachian State University A few editors including myself have made some additions. I'm not expecting too much of an improvement, but I want to see if I can begin an overhaul of this article and I would like an assessment of where I can begin. DavidSSabb (talk) 20:23, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
  13. If anyone's available to reassess Rowan University it'd be much appreciated. Thanks!  RasputinAXP  23:22, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
  14. Can someone re-assess Whitworth University. It most certainly deserves a better article than a "Start". At least a C or a B. It is one of the top schools in the West in USA. And it is ranked #201 on Forbes. Thank you! Jovan92 (talk) 10:13, 19 August 2013 (UTC)Jovan92
    • I set the "importance" assessment to "mid" because whatever, that's irrelevant. However, the quality still is a "Start." The quality of the university has nothing to do with the assessment of the article. There's too much irrelevant material and too little important information (i.e. there's more text for dorm rules than the history of the college). There are two whole sections that are in bullet points, not prose. Overall, the athletic section is about 60% of the total article. It's a "start" article. --GrapedApe (talk) 12:06, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
  1. Could someone please reassess Swinburne University of Technology in light of recent clean-ups and the effort put into creating an entry consistent with Wikipedia guidelines? It now appears equal to B-class that other comparable Australian universities have achieved, e.g Deakin University and La Trobe University. GarryRasmussen1 11:05, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
  2. North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University− If someone could reassess this article that would be greatly appreciated. The article is currently rated Start Class, and since then has underwent extensive improvements to better align it with the project's article guidelines. There is also an open Peer Review Request for the article if anyone is interested in providing feedback to improve the article to GA or even FA status Thanks!  Educatedblkman  1914  04:04, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
  3. Ruffner Hall probably should be assessed. It's meant to be an article about the most notable non-athletic building on the Longwood University campus. Puritan Nerd 04:27, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
  4. I have just spent several days heavily researching and expanding the article Texas State University System, currently a Stub-Class article. The WikiProject doesn't provide any definitive guidelines on articles such as this that deal with higher-ed systems with governing authorities overseeing multiple universities and colleges. Although numerous such articles exist dealing with such systems both in the U.S. and worldwide, most have low assessments. The most highly-assessed similar article I could find to use as guidance is University of Houston System which is assessed as Class B. I believe I have brought the TSUS article to at least the same level of quality as the U of H System article. I would appreciate having the TSUS article reviewed and reassessed, and hearing feedback regarding improvement suggestions and whether it could be taken to the next step for a GA review.

  5. Can someone reassess Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Thiruvananthapuram. It is now Start, but I think it deserves C. I edited it, so cannot reassess it. Jose Mathew (talk) 13:12, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
  6. University of Virginia's College at Wise - I would like to request an assessment. I noticed that it has never been evaluated. RedCavalier94 (talk) 03:24, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
  7. Roosevelt University - I just added this article to this project and am requesting an assessment. Thanks! TRUsmith (talk) 09:38, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  8. University of the Philippines Manila - Hi, I would like to have this article reassessed which I have been working on lately. I believe the re-assessment will help in improving the article more. Thanks! PH 0447 (talk) 12:17, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
  9. Hatfield College, Durham - Would like to have this article reassessed. Significant editing has taken place since March, with most sections expanded. It is currently C-class but I think it's a potential B. Thanks. --Leonstojka (talk) 11:40, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
  10. Could someone please take a look at University of La Verne? It is ranked as a "start," but significant changes have been made by me and others. It has had many new sections added, and has been organized to be more clear. I have also added many citations and rewrote sections of the article that had been copied from other sources. Thank you!
