In Fall 2023, Provost Brown wrote on my behalf to invite over seventy members of the college faculty and staff to serve as members of the committee for the self-study preceding City Tech's periodic Middle States reaccreditation review. I am pleased to acknowledge the committee for the work they have undertaken, and to encourage the many other members of the City Tech community to participate in surveys, focus groups, meetings, and interviews that will give the self-study its substance and texture.
This will be a two-year cross-institutional effort, at the end of which the college will submit its self-study report, followed by a visit from an external team. Subsequently, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education will decide whether to renew City Tech's accreditation. This process is a chance to review our processes, procedures, and goals and to make important recommendations that will guide our institutional work for the next few years.
I thank all who are participating in the Self-Study. Given the college community's dedication to the success of our students, I look forward to our work as a college community in documenting the many ways we work to fulfill our mission and illuminating our path forward.
