Process

In advance of a visit by a team of external evaluators in Fall 2019, MIT is conducting a comprehensive self-study to respond to NECHE’s nine Standards for Accreditation.

An MIT Steering Committee has charged nine planning groups of Institute officers, faculty, staff, and students to examine the Institute and prepare a self-study that describes key institutional activities, with a focus on assessment and projection.  The report will address a broad range of qualities, from academic programming to student life to resources to educational effectiveness.

Academic Council plays an important role in shaping the effort.  The Office of Institutional Research provides data to inform the narrative and will complete the required institutional data forms.

From September 22 to 25, 2019, a team of external evaluators, chaired by Dr. Jean-Lou Chameau – former president of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and the California Institute of Technology – will visit campus to review the study, meet with members of the MIT community, and formulate a recommendation to the Commission.

Pending the Commission’s acceptance of MIT’s report and its decision to continue the Institute’s accreditation, MIT will undergo an interim review in Fall 2024 in advance of its next comprehensive review in 2029.
