York College today announced the publication of a self-study document that represents four years of work and examines every element of campus, from facilities to academics to student experience.
This document is a necessary component of maintaining the school's accreditation through the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association. York College has been accredited by the Commission since 1970.
The self-study is also an opportunity for the administration to look at the goals set for the institution and determine whether they are being achieved, says
Dr. Shane Mountjoy, vice president of student development and dean of students.
"This self-study process is important for accreditation, but it also has immediate value, as it helps us to examine ourselves and make improvements where they are needed," he says.
The next step in the accreditation process is a site visit, which will take place February 17-19. A team of educators from other colleges and universities accredited by HLC will visit York College to assess all aspects of the York Experience. The last visit of this kind at York College took place in 2004.
The HLC team will review the institution’s ongoing ability to meet the Commission’s Criteria for Accreditation.
All are welcome to view the self-study document. The Higher Learning Commission is also collecting comments from the public about York College. All comments must be received by January 17, 2014.
