Self Study (MSCHE)

As part of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) reaccreditation process, institutions must undergo a self study every 10 years and submit a periodic review report every five years.  GW completed its self study in 2008 and was approved for reaccreditation at that time.

      The 2007-2008 Self Study report:

GW’s five-year Periodic Review Report (PRR) is due June 1, 2013. The foci of the report are institutional assessment, planning, and finances and assessment of student learning. Unlike the Self Study, the PRR does not include recommendations.  The Report is reviewed by two peer reviewers and does not include a campus visit by the reviewers. 

The Periodic Review is co-chaired by Teresa Murphy, Associate Professor of American Studies, and Cheryl Beil, Associate Provost for Academic Planning and Assessment.
