MSCHE Call for Comments: Communication in the Accreditation Process and Public Disclosure Policies

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education invites member and public comments on two separate revised policies:

  • > Communication in the Accreditation Process Policy
  • > Public Disclosures Policy

An email was distributed to the key contacts of member institutions on Feb. 22, 2019. The policy is attached to the call for comments, along with the accompanying procedural document to provide context and facilitate understanding of the policy and its implementation. The documents are also available on the Policies Under Review page.

All feedback, no matter how brief, is welcome and should be submitted via the online form. Comments are most helpful when they refer to specific paragraphs in the policy, include the reasons for the comments, and offer specific recommendations. The Commission is seeking widespread feedback, therefore, comments may be submitted by any individual.

Comments are due by March 15, 2019.

All comments received will be considered and the document will be further revised as appropriate for the second review and approval by the Commission at its June 27, 2019 meeting. The policy will then be distributed to the CEOs of member institutions for approval by ballot in July 2019. The approved policy and procedures will become effective Sept. 1, 2019.
