1 Self-Study Town Hall Session Working Group #2 Research, Scholarship and Entrepreneurship Steering Committee Co-Chairs Dean Natalie Eddington Dr. Roger Ward September 9, 2015
2 Town hall objectives 1. Provide information to the UMB community on the self-study organization and process. 2. Allow participants to hear a summary of the standards associated with the theme, compliance with the standards, and the subsequent recommendations resulting from the workgroup s research. 3. Allow participants to provide feedback on the recommendations.
3 Understanding accreditation at UMB UMB has a very active cycle and culture of accreditation. Each professional school is accredited by a specialty accrediting body. In some schools accreditation also happens at the program level.
5 Accreditation at the national level UMB has a very active cycle and culture of accreditation. Each professional school is accredited by a specialty accrediting body. In some schools accreditation also happens at the program level.
6 What is Middle States? The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is one of the recognized regional accreditors. Regional accreditors accredit entire institutions, not individual programs, units, or locations. MSCHE accredits colleges and universities primarily in its region: Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
7 Significance & Importance The Middle States accreditation is separate and apart from the process each of our professional schools and their associated programs undergo routinely. Unlike the school-based accreditations, the Middle States accreditation is the certification we need to continue to receive federal funds to support our education and research missions. Without Middle States accreditation, programs in the schools would be at risk.
8 UMB accreditation history UMB was first accredited by MSCHE in The most recent on-site evaluation was April The most recent Periodic Review Report was submitted in June In November 2011 MSCHE reaffirmed accreditation. The next evaluation visit is scheduled for spring 2016.
9 The self-study: two audiences, two purposes The primary audience is the institution s own community. The secondary audience includes external (or public) constituencies. The primary purpose of the self-study report is to advance institutional self-understanding and self-improvement. The second purpose of the self-study is to demonstrate to external audiences that the institution meets the Commission s standards for accreditation.
10 Middle States accreditation standards The Characteristics of Excellence in Higher Education are a set of fourteen (14) standards with which UMB must demonstrate compliance to maintain accreditation with MSCHE. The standards focus on two fundamental questions: 1. Are we, as an institutional community, achieving what we want to achieve? 2. What should we do to improve our effectiveness in achieving our fundamental aims?
11 Middle States accreditation standards Institutional Context 1. Mission and Goals 2. Planning, Resource Allocation and Institutional Renewal 3. Institutional Resources 4. Leadership and Governance 5. Administration 6. Integrity 7. Institutional Assessment Educational Effectiveness 8. Student Admissions and Retention 9. Student Support Services 10. Faculty 11. Educational Offerings 12. General Education 13. Related Educational Activities 14. Assessment of Student Learning
