IUP Middle States Site Visit Dates Set

Posted on 3/30/2015 11:25:55 AM

Dates for the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) site-team visits have been set.

The team chair will make an initial visit to IUP on November 2 and 3, 2015, to assess IUP’s readiness for the full team visit in spring 2016. The full accreditation team will be comprised of eight to ten additional Middle States peer reviewers, and will be on campus April 10–13, 2016. Both the fall team chair visit and the full accreditation team visit in April 2016 have been added to IUP’s Central Calendar.

The team will be meeting with many individuals and groups across campus, so please mark your calendars now so that you will be available to participate in this decennial event.

In preparation for these site visits, IUP’s Middle States Steering Committee continues its excellent progress on finalizing IUP’s decennial Self-Study, for which the seven IUP Middle States subcommittees will contribute chapters by April 15. The chapters will be synthesized during the summer months in order to create IUP’s draft Self-Study. The campus community will have an opportunity to submit feedback on the Self-Study in the fall, including online and public forums.

If you have any questions about the self-study process, please contact Laura Delbrugge (Laura.Delbrugge@iup.edu) or Hilliary Creely (Hilliary.Creely@iup.edu), cochairs of IUP’s Middle States Steering Committee.
