2013 Periodic Review Report
Five years subsequent to its last Self-Study (2008), the university provides a Periodic Review Report (PRR) to Middle States detailing its current state. The report includes responses to any recommendations arising from the previous Self-Study, a description of the university's major challenges and current opportunities, analysis of its enrollment and financial trends and projections, and documentation of its planning and assessment processes.
The draft 2013 Periodic Review Report (PRR) is a compilation of data and information from over 70 faculty and staff and serves as the basis by which our reaccreditation status will be determined.
As required by Middle States, the report contains six sections: (1) executive summary; (2) responses to our own and the Visiting Team's self-study recommendations; (3) major challenges and opportunities; (4) analysis of enrollment and finance projections; (5) evidence of sustained and organized processes to assess institutional effectiveness and student learning, and the use of assessment results to improve programs and services and inform planning and resource allocation decisions; and (6) evidence that linked institutional planning and budgeting processes are in place.
As the draft continues to be refined, we would be grateful for feedback on the document's content. Please provide your comments to Elizabeth Ann Whiteman by email or by calling 412-268-8251.
