Every 10 years, Edinboro University undergoes a systematic evaluation or self-study as part of the re-accreditation requirements established by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). This self-study process provides an opportunity for the University Community to reflect on how well we are fulfilling our mission as an institution of higher education as outlined by the fourteen accreditation standards put forth by MSCHE. As a result of this endeavor, we anticipate being stronger and better equipped to meet the challenges and opportunities of the next decade. It is from this premise that our self-study process entitled, “Reflection and Renewal — Edinboro University” is unfolding.




Edinboro University is excited to be engaged in our current self-study process toward re-accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). This process allows the entire university to reflect on what we do well and where we can continue to make improvements toward excellence.

I invite you to explore this page and its associated links to familiarize yourself with our timeline, organizational structure, and the many teams of individuals contributing toward making the university an even better place to work and learn.  As we continue to make progress on the self-study, additional data, reports, and other information of value will be posted here to allow for maximum dissemination and discussion.

Our theme for this process – Reflection and Renewal – represents our purpose in this endeavor.   Edinboro University is proud of its institutional, faculty, and student accomplishments, but must continue to renew itself to meet new societal challenges and to remain a regional and national leader in higher education. We embrace our current self-study process as a means to reflect on our both our strengths and weaknesses so that we will emerge ever stronger, focused and relevant.
