Annual Conference

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) will hold its virtual MSCHE 2021 Annual Conference from December 14-15, 2021, focusing on the New Horizons for Higher Education.

While the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis continues to reverberate through higher education, institutions are also on the forefront of simultaneously confronting social justice issues and growing economic uncertainty.

The virtual MSCHE 2021 Annual Conference: New Horizons for Higher Education will highlight the many innovative and adaptive ideas, practices, and outcomes from member institutions that address issues facing higher education. The MSCHE obligation to self-reflection and continuous improvement in accreditation not only encourages institutions to proactively experiment and incubate innovative methods, practices, and services, but requires an intentional and strategic approach to change that leads to student success and supports the Commission’s mission.

Call for Proposals

MSCHE is now accepting session proposals for the virtual MSCHE 2021 Annual Conference.

The MSCHE Annual Conference is most valuable when various institutional types are represented throughout the concurrent sessions so all institutional types (across Carnegie classifications) are encouraged to submit a proposal. Panel presentations that include representatives from diverse institutional types have been previously well-received and are also encouraged.
