Middle States Self-Study
SUNY Geneseo has begun a comprehensive institutional self-study as part its application for a ten-year reaccreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The process begins with an extensive self-examination of virtually all areas and procedures of the College and culminates with a site visit by a team of external reviewers in 2011-12.
From the MSCHE website:
The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is the unit of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools that accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region, which includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and several locations internationally. The Commission is a voluntary, non-governmental, membership association that defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations, and resources. It examines each institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within institutions.
The accreditation process assures the public that colleges and universities are engaging in good practice and rendering high-quality service in accordance with their institutional missions and goals. The process also provides each institution with an opportunity to assess its own procedures and practices from a broad institutional perspective.
Geneseo's self-study is led by a Middle States Steering Committee composed of representatives from faculty, staff, and students. The Steering Committee welcomes active participation by all members of the College Community.
