2017 Accreditation Review Process

The university conducted a self-study as part of the requirements for the 2017 accreditation review. Seven working groups reviewed the university based on the seven standards for accreditation that the MSCHE has implemented to review institutions. The university's 2017 Self-Study was the result of that work. It was submitted to MSCHE and the peer Evaluation Team, in preparation for their visit to campus April 2-5, 2017. Based on the self-study report and the campus visit, the peer Evaluation Team issued their final report.
