A key part of the decennial re-accreditation process is The New School's 2014 Self-Study Report.
To place the report into the broader context of the accreditation process, please refer to the other information provided on this website, especially The New School’s Institutional Self-Study Design. The self-study design provides the context and process for which the self-study report was developed and was approved by the Middle States in the early stages of this process. The accreditation process is laid out in the timeline found here.
The final self-study was submitted to the Middle States Commission in early February 2014. An external evaluation team will now review the self-study and visit our campus in April 2014. The team members are:
|Deborah Freund, Team Chair
||President, Claremont Graduate University
||Provost, Columbus College of Art
||Director of Institutional Research, Planning and Effectiveness, Immaculata University
||Director, Office of Institutional Research, University of Delaware
||Senior Director of Faculty Development and Support, Academic Director of Online Learning, Wilmington University
||Senior Vice President and Treasurer, New Jersey Institute of Technology
||Coordinator for Student Conduct, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
||Chair and Professor of English, State University of New York, College at Buffalo
To complete the decennial re-accreditation process, after the team complete their visit, they will make both oral and written reports to the university and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). The university will have the opportunity to respond to the written team report, after which the MSCHE will conclude this accreditation cycle with a letter on the status of The New School's accreditation.
