|Data and Information|
Committee members access the information to address research questions and communicate about the self study process in D2L.
|Self Study Timeline|
The process includes development of research questions, gathering of evidence and reports on standards, submission of reports on standards, drafting self-study document, review of self-study draft by University community, site visit, and MSCHE reaffirmation decision.
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, Interim 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|
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|

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.
