Self-Study Overview

MICA is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). MICA is currently engaged in self-study leading up to reaccreditation visits from both organizations in the Spring of 2019.

MICA is at a crucial moment in its institutional history: drawing upon its historic strengths in art and design education while transforming as an institution and an educational community to meet the needs of the current century.

Following are the intended outcomes of the self-studies:

  • Demonstrate that MICA meets the MSCHE Requirements of Affiliation and the Standards for Accreditation.
  • Facilitate development of self-study to demonstrate that MICA meets the NASAD Standards for Renewal of Accreditation.
  • Evaluate the alignment between MICA's new mission and vision, the Standards for Accreditation and our current institutional practices and programs.
  • Provide opportunities for thoughtful engagement within the MICA community, characterized by a culture of shared responsibility and transparency, around key practices for planning, assessment and governance that will result in new processes and increased capacity to ensure continual program and operational renewal and the alignment of resources to strategic priorities. 
  • Produce a set of recommendations and that will inform MICA's next strategic plan.
