Every ten years, the University conducts a self-study for the purposes of self-evaluation and institutional improvement as part of the decennial evaluation process set forth by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). The self-study process is an integral part of the university's continuing accreditation and an opportunity to strengthen the university through a comprehensive assessment. The University is now in the middle phase of the process when we develop a draft of our Self-Study Report that will be reviewed by the university community.

We anticipate that the Middle States site visit will take place in academic year 2016 and, between now and that time, everyone's participation in the process is essential. The Self-Study Design document was accepted by MSCHE in April, 2014.  We have prepared a PowerPoint presentation to share with others to learn more about the Self Study process. You can also participate in the process by joining a subcommittee. To join a committee, please complete an application and contact the Co-chairs for the Self Study Steering Committee, Lena Walton, Yolanda Harris, or Brenda Brown.  The Self-Study office is located in Building 38, Room 314 and can be reached at 202.274.7176.
