Welcome to IUP Middle States Accreditation 2016, our decennial university accreditation review.
Accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education is one of the vitally important ways IUP serves
students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the community.
Accreditation provides external validation that IUP upholds the MSCHE Characteristics of Excellence
Higher Education (pdf, 454 KB) in all respects—academic
programs, faculty and staff expertise, campus services, finances,
governance, and more.
A key component of IUP Middle States Accreditation 2016 is
our Self-Study, an assessment made by the IUP community of the progress
the university has made since our last reaffirmation of accreditation.
What does IUP do well? Where is improvement needed?
The IUP Middle States Steering Committee will be moving into the final
stages of drafting the self-study report during the summer of 2015. Once the
draft is prepared, we will invite all members of the IUP community, on and off
campus, to share their opinions by submitting feedback through an online
comment form or attendance at a public forum.
Together we’ll further institutional self-understanding and progress and contribute to the development of a document to be presented to
the MSCHE evaluation team.
It's an ideal time for accreditation review. Under new leadership by President Michael Driscoll and Provost
Timothy Moerland, IUP is charting
its future course in the Strategic Planning Process. As we look forward together to where the university is going, we benefit from a clear understanding of where
we have been.
