Reflection and Renewal … Edinboro University


The MSCHE Self-Study’s effort is being led by three Co-chairs, a Coordinating Committee, and a Steering Committee. The three co-chairs, Dr. Michael Hannan, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Professor Patricia Hillman, Professor and Chair, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, and Dr. Cynthia Legin-Bucell, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, are responsible for all aspects of this process.  The three co-chairs in conjunction with Ms. Judith Kubeja, Senior Executive Associate to the Provost, Dr. Brian Zimmerman, Co-chair, University Planning Committee and Professor of Geosciences, and Mr. Sean Bliley, Director of Institutional Research and Assessment constitute the Self-Study Coordinating Committee which is responsible for guiding this pursuit.  It has been the efforts of the Coordinating Committee that determined how to structure the tasks of the fourteen standards into an organizational framework that would best fit our institutional structure and current functioning.  As a result of those deliberations, six working groups were developed: 

            Mission, Goals and Institutional Assessment Standards:  1, 7
Planning, Resources and Governance  Standards:  2, 3, 4
Faculty, Administration, and Integrity Standards:  5, 6, 10
Admissions and Retention Standards:  8, 9
Curriculum Standards:  11, 12, 13
Student Learning Outcomes Standard:    14


These groups undertake the task of evaluating the fulfillment of the fundamental elements of each standard and the resulting research questions.     

The Self-Study Steering Committee, whose membership includes members of the Coordinating Committee, University Council of Trustees members Mr. John Horan and Mr. Ronald Steele and the Working Group Co-chairs:  

Dr. Brian Zimmerman and Dr. Naod Kebede Mission, Goals and Institutional Assessment
Mr. Sean Bliley and Dr. Scott Miller Planning, Resources and Governance
Dr. Denise Ohler and Dr. Gary Levine Faculty, Administration, and Integrity
Ms. Missy Manning and Mr. Tim Pilewski Admissions and Retention
Dr. Jerra Jenrette and Dr. Sue Curtin Curriculum
Dr. Elisabeth Joyce and Dr. Gwen Price
Student Learning Outcomes

are overseeing this process and are responsible for its integrity.  Additionally, the collaborations of the Steering Committee will facilitate and strengthen the Working Groups’ abilities to understand the relationships among the various University constituencies and their duties.
