Guided Conversations: MSCHE Accreditation Standards and Community and Civic Engagement

Join Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic (CCMA), Campus Compact of New York & Pennsylvania (CCNYPA), New Jersey Campus Compact (NJCC), the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), and others for an exciting series of Guided Conversations aimed to leverage an institution’s community and civic engagement initiatives. By gaining a robust understanding of these initiatives, institutions can better link faculty, staff, and student activities to the accreditation expectations of MSCHE.

The series will kick off with a pre-recorded session on Foundational Aspects of MSCHE: Accreditation Processes, Requirements of Affiliation, and Standards for Accreditation and be followed by five, one-hour guided conversations via Zoom.
