Reaccreditation Open Meetings
As noted in an email from Provost Jeff Cason on September 18, Middlebury is currently undergoing its decennial comprehensive evaluation for accreditation. The evaluation consists of the preparation of a Self-Study, a site visit by a review team of peers, and, ultimately, a decision by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE).
The 100-page self-study was completed in early June, and has been sent to NECHE and the review team. It is also posted on the Provost’s Office website for your review.
The next phase of the evaluation are site visits. Representatives of the review team have already visited the Language Schools, the Bread Loaf School of English, The Institute, and the School in Jordan. The full review team will be in Vermont on November 3-6.
NECHE asks schools that are undergoing their comprehensive evaluations hold these open meetings so that the faculty, staff, and students can provide input to the review team about the institution.

On their last day of meetings the Review team will hold an open meeting for the Middlebury Community to report their initial findings. Faculty, Staff, and Students are invited to attend this meeting which will be held Wednesday, November 6 – 11:00 – noon p.m. – Wilson Hall in McCullough. This meeting will also be live-streamed.
