The self-study process is valuable to an institution; allowing an opportunity to demonstrate that it meets the expectations of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and to gain insights that will serve the institution for future years. The process demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement and will be used to strengthen and sustain our future as an institution of higher education. With the support of President Katherine Conway-Turner and Provost James Mayrose, we will create an inclusive process, engage in a careful analysis of institutional priorities that will be selected in the interest of identifying mission-related areas of improvement, respond effectively to challenges, identify and adopt innovative practices to achieve our mission, adapt to changes in higher education, and to best serve our students and community more readily.
The Self-Study process requires three visits to Buffalo State from representatives from the Middles States Commission on Higher Education. The first of the these visits, the Self-Study Preparation Visit, will take place virtually on Thursday, May 13th via Zoom. Our Vice President Liaison, Dr. Bob Bonfiglio, will meet with members of the campus community to discuss the importance of accreditation and help prepare our campus for a positive on-site evaluation.
The campus community is invited to attend the Open Meeting with the College Community on Thursday, May 13th from 11:30 a.m. – 12:20 p.m. Upon registering for this session through LibCal, an Outlook invitation will be sent to you with the Zoom link. Additionally, please be sure your access to Zoom is up-to-date. We strongly encourage attendees to participate in this meeting with their videos on as this meeting is typically done on-campus and face-to-face with our vice president liaison.
