MSCHE Middle States Commission on Higher Education

Dear Colleagues:

We are excited to share with you the draft of our Middle States Self-Study. This document is a work in progress and will continue to be refined, incorporating your suggestions and feedback, up until its submission, approximately 6 weeks before our site visit. The site visit is scheduled for March 28 – 31, 2021 and will be conducted in a virtual format.

We would like to take this opportunity to extend our appreciation and gratitude for the hard work and dedication of the Steering Committee and each of our 7 Work Groups. Without them, this draft would not be possible. Thank you also to the entire campus community. While you may not have been on one of the work groups, so many of you have contributed to this self-study through providing data, reports, and sharing processes and assessment findings. Thank you.

For more information about accreditation and the self-study process, please visit the Middle States Accreditation webpage on our college website.

Access the self-study draft. (You will need to log in to MyCollege to access the document).

We look forward to hearing your comments and feedback. Please email comments to Kim McLain at or share them with us at one of the upcoming forums.
