Save the Date: Evaluation Team Visit
On April 2-5, 2017, the Middle States Evaluation Team will visit campus to complete its report regarding accreditation of the University.
Planning for the 2017 accreditation review began in 2014, when we were invited to be part of a "Collaboration Implementation Project," the first class of institutions that is using a revised set of Standards of Accreditation and Requirements for Affiliation. The new Standards focus on the same key areas as the older ones, but are reduced in number and significantly less duplicative.
Throughout 2015 and 2016, approximately 75 people organized in seven working groups carried out a comprehensive review of the university based on the 2014 Standards for Accreditation. Their work became the core of the Self Study Report. The self-study provides us with an opportunity to review changes that have taken place over the last decade, identify areas in which we as an institution excel, and set new goals for continuous improvement.
