About the Middle States Self-Study 

The Self-Study approach enables an institution of higher education to reflect on its programs and practices in light of its mission and resources. The process involves both internal and external analysis. See the MSCHE website for more Information.

Middle States has developed seven standards to guide the Self-Study process. These standards consider such factors as the University’s mission, governance structures, student learning, institutional planning, assessment, and the overall student experience.
