Trinity Washington University | 2006 Middle States Self-Study

Assessing Trinity 2000 – Approaching Trinity 2010

February 3, 2006

Every ten years, Trinity participates in a comprehensive accreditation review through the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The first part of this process requires Trinity to prepare a Self-Study examining many different parts of the institution. The Self-Study is conducted according to the Middle States Characteristics of Excellence, the standards for accreditation in this region.

A Steering Committee comprised of members of the faculty and administrative staff prepare the parts of the Self-Study. Academic Vice President Dr. Sue Blanshan and Associate Professor of Communication Dr. Brad Mello co-chair the Self-Study.

Accreditation also expects campus-wide participation in the Self-Study review. Accordingly, we have posted the following final report of Trinity’s Self-Study on our website.

On April 2-5, Trinity will host the Middle States visiting team, comprised of presidents, provosts and faculty from other similarly-sized institutions.
