Dear Members of the RIT Community:
I am pleased to share with you the letter we received this week from Middle States Commission on Higher Education affirming our reaccreditation. This decision represents a highly successful outcome.
RIT’s site visit report from our MSCHE Evaluation Team was quite comprehensive and very complimentary. The report affirmed that RIT had met all accreditation standards and the requirements of affiliation. There were no additional requirements stipulated. In addition, the team affirmed the recommendations and suggestions proposed by RIT in our Self Study and added two additional recommendations of their own.
The Evaluation Team’s final report and our institutional response are now posted. I encourage you to review both because they lay the foundation for our future actions.
I wish to express a heartfelt thank you to our community for your incredible involvement in the self-study process and the site team visitation in April. Special appreciation is offered to our dedicated Self-Study Steering Committee, co-chaired by Dr. Michael Laver and Dr. Anne Wahl, to our equally dedicated working groups, and to Provost Haefner and Senior Associate Provost Licata. Together you raised the bar for future accreditation work!
