General Education Committee
A shared repository of documents, readings and survey feedback.
This is a link to NEASC's website on the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE). It provides detailed information on accreditation standards, recent CIHE actions, and upcoming evaluations.
"The New England Association of Schools and Colleges, one of six regional accrediting bodies in the United States, is a voluntary, non-profit, self-governing organization having as its primary purpose the accreditation of educational institutions. Through its evaluation activities, carried out by six commissions, the Association provides public assurance about the educational quality of those schools and colleges that seek or wish to maintain membership, which is synonymous with accreditation."
