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 in Higher Education (pdf, 454 KB) in all respects—academic
programs, faculty and staff expertise, campus services, finances, governance,
A key component of IUP Middle States Accreditation 2016 is the IUP 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 has released a draft copy of the Self Study for review. We invite all
members of the IUP community, on and off campus, to share their opinions of the
draft by submitting feedback through the online comment form or attending a
public forum. Feedback will be accepted through October 31.
Once feedback is received, the steering committee will review the feedback
and make changes to the Self Study. A
final copy of the document will then be released in the spring semester prior
to IUP’s April 10-13 site visit.
It's an ideal time for accreditation review. Under the leadership of
President Mike Driscoll and Provost Tim Moerland, IUP is charting its future
course with a new Strategic
Plan. As we look forward together to where the university is going, we
benefit from a clear understanding of where we have been.
