Middle States Self-Study Visit Campus Forums March

    February 27, 2019

    The University's Middle States Self-Study Visit is taking place March 3-6, 2019. The Middle States Peer Review Evaluation Team will hold forums for students, faculty, and staff, respectively. 

    Students: Monday, March 4th, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Rose Room, 509 Brennan Hall. 

    Faculty: Tuesday, March 5th, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in the Rose Room. 

    Staff: Tuesday, March 5th, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in 228 Brennan Hall. 

    Light refreshments will be served at all events.

    Oral Report/Exit Presentation: The Team will present its findings at a final presentation open to the campus community on Wednesday, March 6, from 11 a.m. to Noon in the Rose Room, 509 Brennan Hall. 

    The Team joins us in our self-study on behalf of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), one of seven regional accreditors within the United States. The Middle States peer review team verifies that any institution of higher education seeking accreditation meets the MSCHE standards. Institutions of higher education must receive accreditation to qualify for federal student financial aid, and other sources of funding. The theme for the University's Self-Study process has been “Reflect, Discern, Renew” in keeping with our Ignatian tradition of reflection and seeking excellence and the Magis through continuous improvement. 

    The Team will pay careful attention to our own Self-Study Report, which is available through the my.Scranton portal on the News Tab (scroll down to the left to Middle States Self Study).
