The draft Periodic Review Report for the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is now available on the University's website.  All of us who have worked on it invite the review and comments of members of the Senate, as well as of other members of the University community. Please send any comments and recommendations you have to Jim Burkley ( so that we have time to follow up and make necessary changes to the draft.

Following a comment period that will close in early May, the report will be finalized and submitted to MSCHE.  MSCHE will appoint two external readers who will evaluate the documentation and will provide an analysis to MSCHE by August 1.  The report of the reviewers will be shared with the university for a response that must be submitted to MSCHE by September 1.  Following MSCHE review, the university should be notified of its accreditation status sometime in October or November.
