MIDDLE STATES MOMENT

Accredited by Middle States Commission on Higher Education 

Welcome to the new Daily Brief feature --- Middle States Moment. Over the next three semesters, the Middle States Steering Committee will provide regular updates in the Daily Brief on the decennial or 10-year institutional self-study process. If you have questions about these announcements, would like to provide feedback, or are interested in participating in this important process, please contact either Carole Wells (Chair, Steering Committee), Jerry Silberman (Co-Chair, Planning and Resource Allocation), or Gil Clary (Co-Chair, Assessment). Kutztown University has been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) since 1944. As an institutional accrediting agency, MSCHE is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The Middle States region includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Commission is a voluntary, non-governmental membership association that defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations, and resources. It examines each institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within institutions. We look forward to sharing more Middle States Moments with you in the days ahead!
