Subject: Middle States Self Study Visiting Team Chair Named

As you know, we are presently preparing for our 2012 team visit conducted as part of our re-accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. We are honored to have Robert Palazzo, Provost and Professor of Biology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, serve as the chair of the team. Dr. Palazzo will schedule his preliminary visit to us in the fall of 2011, and he will return to lead the visiting team during the spring of 2012.

We are making excellent progress in preparation for the final stages of the self study, and I encourage you to visit our web site to learn more about the work of faculty, staff, students, administrators, alumni, and members of the Board of Trustees to document the many ways in which NJIT fulfills its mission: http://www.njit.edu/middlestates/

When we solidify the dates of Dr. Pelazzo’s arrival, we will let you know so you can join me in welcoming him to NJIT.

Thanks,

Bob
