Stockton College Accreditation Reaffirmed by Middle States Commission on Higher Education
Galloway, NJ – The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey received notice its accreditation has been reaffirmed with two commendations by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). Much of the work for accreditation was initiated through Stockton’s 2020 Strategic Planning process using a balanced scorecard approach developed at Harvard University.
The evaluation team, comprised of representatives of peer institutions, issued a report praising Stockton for its emphasis on teaching and a “uniform commitment to students on the part of the faculty, administration and staff.”
Accreditation by MSCHE is for a 10-year term. It was granted by the association following completion of the normal reaccreditation process, which includes Stockton’s self-study report and Middle States’ comprehensive evaluation. The process includes an on-site visit by a MSCHE evaluation team. A “periodic review report” is due in June, 2017 and no further follow-up is required for compliance. In many cases, such follow-up is the standard procedure, and the fact Stockton was not asked to provide it is an unusual step by MSCHE, according to Stockton President Herman J. Saatkamp.
