Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) has launched its first combined University Middle States Commission on Higher Education Self-Study.
The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education to conduct accreditation and pre-accreditation (candidacy status) activities for institutions of higher education. The Commission assures students and the public of the educational quality of higher education and ensures institutional accountability, self-appraisal, improvement and innovation through peer review and the rigorous application of standards within the context of the institution’s mission.
The Middle States Self-Study is officially underway at Jefferson and will conclude with the Site Team visit in spring 2020. This process is a collaboration among students, faculty and administration that allows Jefferson to highlight our combined University’s success in meeting all accreditation requirements including:
- Mission and Goals
- Ethics and Integrity
- Design and Delivery of the Student Learning Experience
- Support of the Student Experience
- Educational Effectiveness Assessment
- Planning, Resources and Institutional Improvement
- Governance, Leadership and Administration
Stay tuned for updates on the study as they become available.
