NEASC Accreditation Comprehensive Evaluation - Opportunity for Public Comment
Southern New Hampshire University will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit on Sunday, September 23rd 2018 through Wednesday, September 26th 2018, by a team representing the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education is one of seven accrediting commissions in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis. Accreditation is voluntary and applies to the institution as a whole. The Commission, which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, accredits approximately 240 institutions in the six-state New England region.
Southern New Hampshire University has been accredited by the Commission since 1973 and was last reviewed in November, 2011. Its accreditation by the New England Association encompasses the entire institution.
For the past year and a half, Southern New Hampshire University has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission's Standards for Accreditation. An evaluation team will visit the institution to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate. The team will recommend to the Commission a continuing status for the institution. Following a review process, the Commission itself will take the final action.
The public is invited to submit comments regarding the institution to:
Public Comment on Southern New Hampshire University Commission on Institutions of Higher Education
New England Association of Schools and Colleges
3 Burlington Woods Drive, Suite 100
Burlington, MA 01803-4514
Public Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of the institution. The Commission cannot settle disputes between individuals and institutions, whether those involve faculty, students, administrators, or members of other groups. Comments will not be treated as confidential and must include the name, address, and telephone number of the person providing the comments.
Public Comments must be received by Wednesday, September 26th 2018. The Commission cannot guarantee that comments received after that date will be considered.
