Welcome to the GCNYC Self-Study Report page. GCNYC is preparing a “self-study” as part of its application for accreditation to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). GCNYC achieved candidacy status with MSCHE on June 21, 2018. Candidacy status indicates that GCNYC has achieved membership and is progressing toward, but is not assured of, accreditation.
This page is intended to report to stakeholders on our progress toward application for MSCHE review for accreditation. Recent milestones include the following:
May 2: GCNYC received notice that MSCHE approved its Self-Study Design. Members of the GCNYC community are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Self-Study design as GCNYC seeks broad participation in its Self-Study Project.
June 24: GCNYC President and CEO Pamela Gillies announced appointment of Dr. Walter B. Roettger as Interim Provost.
August 1: Interim Provost Roettger is appointed as Accreditation Liaison Officer (ALO) to MSCHE.
August 28: Roettger is appointed Chair of the Self-Study Steering Committee and will work with continuing Co-Chair Jessica Chang-Russell on this project. Roettger will also serve as the Chair of the Working Group on Standards I and II. Dr. Kerri Quinn, Student Learning Coordinator, was appointed Chair of the Working Group on Standards III, IV, and V. Chang-Russell will continue as Chair of the Working Group on Standards VI and VII. The Self-Study Steering Committee will begin its work for the new academic year on Monday, September 9.
If you have questions or require additional information about the process and requirements of the Self-Study or about how you may become involved, please contact co-Chairs Walter Roettger (email@example.com) or Jessica Chang-Russell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
