W 2014 SACSCOC Reaffirmation
As we undertake the very important responsibility of seeking reaffirmation of accreditation from the Southern Association of College and Schools Commission on Colleges, I invite you to become familiar with this website and its resources. I also encourage you to fully participate in the process it represents.
The self-study provides a significant opportunity to examine every function of our university, and a successful reaffirmation requires that everyone be committed to the effort. Your participation ensures the rigorous, honest self-assessment necessary for clear and sustained strategic planning. The information we gather as a community—both our accomplishments and our areas for improvement—will contribute to developing a stronger MUW and one that continues to be committed to excellence in its core mission of student learning.
I thank you for your willingness to participate in this meaningful work. The self-study is our institutional report card as well as our opportunity to discover how we can become even better. I ask each unit to review itself and its processes carefully and objectively. Together we can seize opportunities for improvement and showcase MUW's long tradition of excellence in liberal arts and professional education, as well as its historic focus on academic and leadership development for women.
Please continue to visit this website to stay informed and fully engaged in the reaffirmation process. Thank you for your dedication to the continued quality education for which MUW is known.
