Updates and Documents

Update from the Co-Chairs
February 19, 2018

Since our self-study launch on September 12, 2017, the eight working groups met throughout the fall semester to gather information and develop chapter outlines related to their assigned Middle States Standards. On December 8, 2017, working groups submitted outlines of their self-study chapters to the steering committee. The steering committee co-chairs reviewed these outlines and approved all working groups to proceed with writing or refining their chapter drafts.

This spring semester will be a time of intensive drafting of the self-study. Working groups submitted first drafts of completed chapters to the steering committee on February 16, 2018. The steering committee will review the drafts and provide the working groups with feedback on their progress toward demonstrating MICA's compliance with the MSCHE Standards for Accreditation. The working groups will then have additional time to refine their chapter narratives before a final draft deadline on April 2, 2018.

Though the self-study is comprised of eight working groups representing a broad range of MICA constituencies, we recognize that many other community members have contributed to this work. We are grateful for the effort that all of us, as a community, continue to give to this process of reflection and analysis leading to our completed self-study. We will continue to provide updates via this site as we achieve major milestones. Along the way, you are welcome to reach out to us with questions as we continue with this campus-wide project. Feel free to contact us at selfstudy@mica.edu.

Sincerely,

Update from the Co-Chairs
November 10, 2017

MICA has proposed to NASAD a plan for completing self-study for reaffirmation of accreditation that makes use of our concurrent MSCHE self-study. NASAD has approved this plan which allows us to make efficient use of our resources while engaging in the analysis and synthesis of information for the two re-accreditation processes. Details of this process and the deliverables can be found in the NASAD Self-Study Design Plan and the updated MSCHE Self-Study Design Plan.

Working groups have been meeting, discussing the accreditation standards, and gathering information and evidence to show compliance with the standards. While the first deadline for working groups, an outline for their chapter, is not due until early-December, many groups have already started drafting content for narratives.

Together, the eight working groups are making good progress on the self-study. We will continue to provide updates via this site as major milestones are achieved. Along the way, you are welcome to reach out to us with questions as we engage in this campus-wide project. Feel free to contact us at selfstudy@mica.edu.

Update from the Co-Chairs
September 20, 2017

Following several semesters of planning and pre-work, the MICA community is now fully engaged in the self-study processes for our upcoming MSCHE and NASAD reaffirmations of accreditation. A launch and training meeting was held on September 12, 2017 with members of each of the working groups that are responsible for providing insights and analysis for our final self-study documents.

The working group membership is comprised of broad representation from the MICA community with staff, faculty, students and members of the Board of Trustees taking part in the process. The complete list of working groups and their membership can be seen in the MSCHE Self-Study Design Plan. This document also contains detailed timelines for the self-study process including work that has been completed and work yet to be done between now and summer of 2019. Community members may reach out to their representatives on the working groups with questions or comments between now and the formal call for feedback in the fall of 2018. Likewise, members of working groups will be consulting with others in the campus community as they go about their tasks.

We plan to provide updates via this site as major milestones in the self-study process are approaching and achieved. Along the way, you are welcome to reach out to us with questions as we engage in this campus-wide project. Feel free to contact us at selfstudy@mica.edu.

Sincerely,
