The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) recently awarded Waynesburg University reaccreditation for a ten-year period.
“Our success in this assessment of the life, culture and progress of Waynesburg University speaks to the dedication of the entire University community,” said Waynesburg University President Douglas G. Lee. “This reaccreditation is a true reflection of the quality of our academic programs, the individuals behind them and the students enrolled in them.”
MSCHE is a voluntary, non-governmental, membership association that defines, maintains and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations and resources. It examines each institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within institutions.
To earn and maintain accreditation, Waynesburg University was required to demonstrate that it meets or surpasses mutually agreed-upon standards to colleagues from peer institutions. The 14 standards covered everything from institutional assessment of overall effectiveness in achieving mission and goals to student support services and educational offerings.
According to the Commission’s vision statement, the commission intends, through voluntary assessment and adherence to high standards for student learning outcomes and operational behavior, to assure higher education’s publics that its accredited institutions are fulfilling their stated purposes and addressing the publics’ expectations.
Waynesburg University has been accredited by MSCHE since 1950.
