Middle States Self Study

Alvernia University began a two-year self study accreditation project in early 2013 that will end with an onsite meeting with a team of external peer evaluators in 2015. 
Heading the self-study process on campus is a 30 member Steering Committee appointed by the President and Cabinet

This committee is working with 14 different research groups to gather information and support materials that will help answer important questions about the university's identity, educational quality, student communities, external engagement, and resource development. 

The first step in this process was to develop a Self-Study Design Document, outlining the steps Alvernia plans to follow in order to successfully complete the process. In May of 2013, Middle States approved the Self-Study Design Document

The final report will be organized into five areas of institutional strategic priorities:

Research teams are broken down into 14 different standards (above). The self-study provides an opportunity for Alvernia University to assess its successes and challenges in a comprehensive and systematic way that not only meets accreditation requirements but also specifically assesses the university’s performance in reference to institutional aspirations and the challenges and opportunities of environmental conditions.
