Reaccreditation Steering Committee

In September, 2008, a Steering Committee of faculty and administrators was appointed by Rev. Michael McFarland, S.J., President of the College, to oversee the preparation of the self-study.  Members of the Steering Committee were chosen for their expertise in each of the eleven standards; roughly speaking, each member of the Committee has primary responsibility for one standard.  For each standard, there is also a subcommittee (composed of faculty, administrators, and students, most of whom are not on the Steering Committee), chaired by the member of the Steering Committee responsible for that standard; that subcommittee will prepare an outline and collect supporting evidence. 

During the 2008-2009 academic year, the Committee met once a month to review the subcommittee’s outlines, and a draft of the self-study was circulated to the College community for comment in the fall of 2009.  Our self-study was completed in January 2010, and subsequently submitted to NEASC.
