BROOKFIELD — Herzing University announced it received approval from the Higher Learning Commission to continue with its plans to become a nonprofit, according to an internal memo.

“Herzing University will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015, and the move to non-profit status is to ensure continuity and on-going success of the institution in fulfilling its mission. The university will continue as is and anticipates no material changes to its leadership, faculty, staff, programs or services to students. We are looking forward to this exciting next step in our evolution,” according to the memo from Herzing University President Renee Herzing.

The school has campuses in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio and Nebraska, including Brookfield, Kenosha and Madison.
