The New England Commission on Higher Education (formerly NEASC) is our university's regional accrediting body. Salem State is preparing for our 10-year comprehensive evaluation, including an April 2021 site visit. Accreditation by NECHE is a voluntary, peer-review process with the goals of enhancing effectiveness, improvement, and public assurance. A successful accreditation is critical to our university, offering opportunities for institutional self-assessment and advancement.
Want to learn more about NECHE? Come to NECHE-Fest!
Join the NECHE committees on Wednesday, January 8 in Marsh Dining Hall from 1-4:30 pm. The committees working on each of the nine standards will meet together, discuss data to report, and review their progress to date. Drop in at any time during this afternoon to contribute to the self-study process.
Salem State's self-study report is due in January 2021. Broad-based community involvement is needed to candidly and effectively reflect on our institutional progress, and to address the accreditation standards established by NECHE. Learn more details about the accreditation standards.
