Re: Actions of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education

I am pleased to share with you the Statement of Accreditation and accompanying letter from Dr. R. Barbara Gitenstein, Chair of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, informing us that our accreditation was reaffirmed on June 28, 2012.  Please note that a progress report will be due on November 1, 2013, and the five-year Periodic Review report on June 1, 2017.

Again, I wish to thank you for the invaluable support you provided before and during the reaccreditation visit.  I look forward to working with you in further developing and implementing an assessment process for evaluation of all educational offerings (Standard 11) and general education as a discrete program (Standard 12) with a focus on student learning (Standard 14).  It’s a pleasure to be part of such a remarkable institution.
