January 17, 2017. Even universities get report cards.
Every decade or so, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) has its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) review Harvard for reaccreditation. The University was last reaccredited in 2009, and produced an interim report on the results in 2013.
The process is an opportunity for the University to take stock of its mission and achievement and develop opportunities for improvement, said Scott Edwards, the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology, professor of organismic and evolutionary biology, curator of ornithology at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, and chair of Harvard’s reaccreditation steering committee.
