About Middle States Accreditation
The MSCHE is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U. S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
The stated mission of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education is to assure “students and the public of the educational quality of higher education. The Commission’s accreditation process ensures institutional accountability, self-appraisal, improvement, and innovation through peer review and the rigorous application of standards within the context of institutional mission.”
MSCHE most recently reaffirmed accreditation in 2017 with the acceptance of the Periodic Review Report. The Statement of Accreditation Status can be found here. In the fall of 2019, the College officially commenced the next round of self-study, in preparation for a visit and evaluation by MSCHE in the spring of 2022. College President RADM Michael Alfultis appointed William J. Imbriale, Dean of Students, and Elissa De Falco, Associate Professor (Humanities), as self-study co-chairs.
Dr. Imbriale and Dr. De Falco subsequently attended the MSCHE Self-Study Institute in Philadelphia with the Vice Provost for Institutional Assessment, Dr. Linda Sturges. Currently, the co-chairs are working alongside Dr. Sturges and Dr. Joseph C. Hoffman, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, to complete the self-study design. The design process will establish the major components and goals of the 2021-22 self-study process.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to take an active role in the self-study process. Every member of the community has valuable insights and skills to contribute; only with contributions from all levels, divisions and departments can the College move forward in a genuinely transparent and collaborative process.
Please contact Dr. Imbriale or Dr. DeFalco to express interest in participation.
