2014 Middle States Accreditation

Welcome to the College website for the 2014 Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) Accreditation.  As we prepare for our 2014 accreditation visit, informational documents and updates will be posted on the site. The Middle States reaccreditation process provides a wonderful opportunity to showcase how we are meeting our mission and goals as a College. Additionally, it gives us an opportunity to examine all dimensions of our College and to engage in an examination of our programs, policies, and procedures using the fourteen Middle States Characteristics of Excellence. We are also able to look at ourselves from an outside perspective, through the eyes of peer evaluators who share our understanding of higher education.

Several Work Groups have been meeting since spring 2012 to create a 100-page Self-Study report which analyzes the College's strengths, challenges and opportunities for growth. All members of the College community are encouraged to read the final report posted on this site in preparation for the Team Visit, March 30-April 2, 2014.

Your assistance and engagement in the process are critical for ensuring a successful Self-Study intended to strengthen our institution and higher education in general.
