Middle States Update
May 31, 2023
Dear Immaculata community,
Now that the spring semester is complete, I want to provide you with an update on the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) accreditation review and site visit.
Over the past year, the co-chairs, steering committee members and work groups have been busy working on the self-study report in preparation for the reaccreditation self-study evaluation visit. The MSCHE accreditation process requires that the University demonstrate the institution’s compliance with the MSCHE Standards for Accreditation. This fall, the campus community will be invited to presentations provided by steering committee members that will review Immaculata’s response to the Standards.
This exercise is in preparation for the MSCHE site visit, which is scheduled for March 24-27, 2024. The chair of the team who will conduct the Immaculata accreditation site visit is Dr. Elizabeth Paul, president of Nazareth College in Rochester, New York. Dr. Paul’s preliminary campus site visit is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2023. The preliminary visit provides Dr. Paul with an opportunity to engage with campus stakeholders, provide feedback on the draft schedule for the full team visit and confirm that Immaculata is prepared for the scheduled visit.
I’ll share additional information with you prior to the upcoming visits.
Thank you for your commitment to the MSCHE project and for your continued service to Immaculata.
