MSCHE accreditation assures students, families, and the public of the educational quality of a La Salle education. Institutional accreditation is also a requirement for the University to participate in the Department of Education’s Title IV federal financial aid program.
Every eight years, colleges and universities with MSCHE accreditation must engage in a self-study evaluation, which requires institutions to engage in a comprehensive and reflective assessment process to evaluate educational quality and the institution’s success in meeting its mission. As part of this two-year self-assessment process, the University will identify institutional priorities and opportunities for improvement and innovation.
The self-study process is a university-wide initiative, and students, faculty staff and other institutional constituencies should be aware of this self-study process and the many opportunities for participation.
