The IUP Self Study, submitted to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) as part of IUP's 2016 reaffirmation of accreditation, is available for download and print.

IUP's Self Study was developed over a two-year period, with research being conducted by seven subcommittees, including 200 members of the campus community. The Self Study was written by Distinguished University Professor Ben Rafoth, edited and approved by the IUP Middle States Steering Committee, and endorsed by IUP's administration and the Council of Trustees.
