Welcome to the GCNYC Self-Study Report page. This page is being created to share our progress in the process of a 2-year institutional Self-Study we have launched as a critical part of the requirement to advance from the candidacy status (that we have been granted in June 21, 2018) to the full accreditation status. 


May 2, 2019 

We received notice that Middle States Commission on Higher Education has approved our Self-Study Design. Therefore the Self-Study is officially launched.

All members of the GCNYC community are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Self-Study Design as we work towards the maximum possible community participation. Working Groups will be contacted by their Working Groups Chairs to schedule an action plan discussion.

If you would like to inquire further about the process and requirements of the Self-Study or how you can get involved in our working groups, please contact co-Chairs Viktoria Popova (viktoria.popova@gcu.ac.uk) and Jessica Chang-Russell (jessica.changrussell@gcu.ac.uk)
