Self-Study Process 2019-2022
SUNY Brockport is currently undergoing a two-year reaccreditation process culminating in a spring 2022 site visit by a team of external evaluators, their report to the Middle States Commission, and the Commission’s subsequent decision.
To earn reaccreditation, we must complete a self-study that demonstrates our achievement of the commissions seven Standards for Accreditation and fifteen Requirements of Affiliation.
This draft self-study results from 15 months of work by over 90 members of the college community, organized into eight working groups and a steering committee. The chapters are organized by Standard, addressing some of the Requirements as well.
We gathered feedback on the draft self-study report in April 2021. The April draft is below. If you have any comments, you can share them with the Self-Study co-chairs, Monica Brasted and/or Amy Guptill, or OAA Director, Frances Dearing .
In this video, Amy Guptill, faculty co-chair of the self-study, provides a brief overview of reaccreditation and the content of the draft self-study report.Watch Now
