Subject: MSCHE Liaison Visit March 9

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Mary Ellen Petrisko, Vice President of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, will be joining us at NJIT on March 9 to review our accreditation self study design. The schedule for the day is posted at our website, and I would encourage faculty, staff and students to visit with Dr. Petrisko to learn more about the self study process and inform her about our campus.

We have now completed New Jersey Institute of Technology Self Study Design: A Technological Research University for the 21st Century, and reviewing that document is a good place to study our design process. Our MSCHE accreditation process resonates with the NJIT Self Study and Strategic Plan, 2010-2015, and reviewing as well our new strategic plan, in its final stages of development, is a good way to learn more about the resonance between MSCHE accreditation and NJIT strategic planning.

I look forward to continuing to work together during these review and planning efforts.

Thanks,

Bob
