Writing the Self-Study

During the 2009-10 academic year, the Slippery Rock University Self-Study Steering Committee developed their subcomittee reports to be submitted by May 30.  Over the summer months self-study committee members met with the co-chairs to discuss revisions and to provide additional data and information for the reports.

Moving Right Along

Dr. Cosgrove and Ms. Dillon have been meeting with the individual working groups as they move forward with their research. The groups are focused on demonstrating compliance with Middle States standards and beginning to answer the Self-Study questions. To facilitate the efforts of the working groups co-chairs Cosgrove and Dillon have developed the Middle States SharePoint site as the central location for the documents necessary for the Self-Study research. The site is updated regularly as new documents are discovered. Thank you to all of those who have added documents and/or made suggestions to improve the quality and efficiency of the site.
