Every 10 years, we are assessed for re-accreditation by The New England Association for Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Our last review was very successful and identified important university goals and challenges that have subsequently guided institutional change.
NEASC provides standards, 11 in all, that act as guidelines for the information needed for re-accreditation. These 11 standards guide our preparation of a self-study document.
Over the course of 18 months, this self-study document is generally produced by faculty and administrators with feedback from the entire community. It is formally submitted to NEASC before their Visiting Team comes to campus.
The team then drafts a comprehensive report, then NEASC makes the decision to reaccredit.
