Middle States Self-Study Update
Dr. Bambara, the chair of our Middle States Evaluation Team, presented an oral summary of the Team's findings to the RCGC community on April 11, 2018. She expressed thanks for the participation of everyone involved in the evaluation process.
We are happy to report that RCGC has satisfied all Middle States standards and requirements of affiliation, as well as all of the compliance requirements.
The Middle States Evaluation team will submit their written report and recommendations to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education within the next few weeks. If the Commission approves our reaccreditation, we will receive a letter from them sometime in June.
Self-examination and assessment have proven to be important and enlightening processes which will provide critical guidance as we build the RCGC of the future. We extend our deepest appreciation to all who have contributed to this notable accomplishment.
RCGC is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The College is scheduled to submit a Self-Study Report as part of the accreditation process. Over the next two years, seven Working Groups, along with RCGC's Middle States Steering Committee, will assess the programs and services at RCGC in relation to the College's mission and Middle States standards.
All of the discussions and reports over the next two years will be compiled into the Self-Study Report and reviewed by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The Commission will issue its response along with its recommendations in 2018.
