Workshops for Team Chairs and Evaluators

MSCHE offers formal training for chairs and evaluators twice per year, including a full-day session in October and a half-day session immediately prior to the annual conference in December. As the Commission transitions to its revised accreditation standards, it expects to expand its training programs for all chairs and evaluators.

Following are some training materials from past sessions for chairs and evaluators. These materials can be helpful refreshers for MSCHE volunteers. The Commission encourages its volunteers to participate in training workshops for chairs and evaluators in order to remain abreast of the latest accreditation requirements and recent changes to federal regulations.
