NEASC Accreditation

By Daniel Hastings, Dean for Undergraduate Education

Dean Daniel HastingsIn my comments at the DUE all staff meeting, I mentioned that DUE had a large role in the recent NEASC self study and team visit. One of the biggest sections in the NEASC standards is about the academic program while another us about the information resources that are provided to students. We played a significant role in writing these sections of the self study report in conjunction with the President’s office. The NEASC team specifically commented on the quality and clarity of the report.

We also had lead roles in the plenary session on undergraduate education, admissions and financial aid, learning outside the classroom, teaching, and learning assessment. We had important supporting roles on global strategy and library and informational resources. We received very good feedback on our contributions.

The NEASC team had a strong sense of the quality of the work in DUE. I want to congratulate all who contributed. Great work.
