Middle States Review Self Study Chapters Now Online

Keen critical analysis is a core New School value, regardless of your area of study. Now The New School community has the opportunity to focus our analytical vision inward as part of the once-a-decade Middle States Commission on Higher Education reaccreditation process.

The New School’s Self Study chapters are now posted publicly on the university’s Middle States Review site.  These chapters reflect the collaboration of a broad committee of students, faculty and staff.  From now until the submission of our Self Study in early November, the New School community is invited to read and share their thoughts on the report.

In addition, please join President David E. Vandt and Provost Tim at a university-wide forum on the self-study on October 15 from 11:30 am to 2 pm in the Theresa Lang Center in Arnhold Hall, 55 West 13th Street.
