2019-2020 Self-Study 

In 2014, the MSCHE Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation were revised. The accreditation process was also revised. Key changes to the process include:

  • Annual institutional updates (AIUs) reporting on student outcomes and financial health
  • Change to an eight year cycle
  • Replacement of the Periodic Review Report with trend review of previous AIUs
  • Inclusion of an electronic document room for self-study, reviewed prior to the site visit
  • Ability to focus the self-study narrative on continuous improvement initiatives

Preparations for our Self-Study are underway.  Professors Tracy Amerman and Fran Moran will serve as co-chairs of the Self-Study Committee.  AVP Sue Gerber will serve as ex-officio on the committee.  We are currently seeking volunteers to serve.  Please email MSCHE2020@njcu.edu to volunteer.
