MCC Receives Reaccreditation with Commendation from MSCHE

On June 23, 2016 the Middle States Commission on Higher Education voted to take the following action regarding Monroe Community College:

“To reaffirm accreditation and commend the institution for
the quality of its self-study process and report.”

This decision comes after nearly two years of self-reflective inquiry, conducted by over one hundred faculty and professional staff functioning in fourteen working groups and a steering committee. The resulting report was reviewed by a seven-member evaluation team from community colleges from across the Middle States region, who visited MCC in mid-March, 2016 and compiled their own summary report of findings concerning MCC’s fulfillment of the MSCHE’s accreditation standards. The leadership of Monroe Community College was officially notified in a letter from the Middle States Commission on June 28th. MCC’s self-study, and the visiting team report, can be accessed near the bottom of this page.
