Wesleyan submitted its final version of a self-study to the university’s accrediting agency on Aug. 15.
The agency, The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), accredits approximately 240 institutions in the six-state New England area, and universities are accredited every 10 years. A team representing NEASC will visit campus Sept. 30-Oct. 3 and conduct a comprehensive evaluation.
In an all-campus e-mail on Aug. 22, Provost Rob Rosenthal wrote, “We look forward to their constructive criticism and to showing them what an extraordinary institution we are! The self-study is the product of a great many members of our community, and I thank everyone involved.” Rosenthal is the vice president for Academic Affairs and the John E. Andrus Professor of Sociology.
For the past year and half, Wesleyan has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission’s Standards of Accreditation.
