Project Title: The Relationship between Accreditation and Integrated Planning
The project will research the relationship between accreditation and integrated planning. The revised Standards have been introduced to Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) members in a deliberated and phased manner. Institutions are now beginning to develop self-studies under the new process. This research will explore the extent to which the “new model” of accreditation fosters planning. The knowledge gained from this research can be used to aid MSCHE member institutions and may also provide insight to the field of accreditation overall.
