Commission On Higher Education

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region. It examines the institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within the institution.

According to the MSCHE, the accreditation process includes "assessment, peer evaluation, consultation, information gathering and sharing, cooperation, and appropriate educational activities."

The Commission maintains on its website lists of actions on higher education. Included are decisions to grant or reaffirm accreditation; place institutions on warning, probation, or show cause; remove accreditation; or require monitoring or progress reports.

Although its focus is the Middle States region, MSCHE does accredit a number of higher education institutions located overseas.

Famous quotes containing the words higher education, education, commission and/or higher:

    I never feel so conscious of my race as I do when I stand before a class of twenty-five young men and women eager to learn about what it is to be black in America.
    Claire Oberon Garcia, African American college professor. As quoted in the Chronicle of Higher Education, p. B3 (July 27, 1994)

    Those things for which the most money is demanded are never the things which the student most wants. Tuition, for instance, is an important item in the term bill, while for the far more valuable education which he gets by associating with the most cultivated of his contemporaries no charge is made.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Yesterday the Electoral Commission decided not to go behind the papers filed with the Vice-President in the case of Florida.... I read the arguments in the Congressional Record and can’t see how lawyers can differ on the question. But the decision is by a strictly party vote—eight Republicans against seven Democrats! It shows the strength of party ties.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Thou shalt make thy house
    The temple of a nation’s vows.
    Spirits of a higher strain
    Who sought thee once shall seek again.
    I detected many a god
    Forth already on the road,
    Ancestors of beauty come
    In thy breast to make a home.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
