NEASC Accreditation

The meetings with members of the NEASC external evaluation team will all be held Nov. 2nd, at 4:00pm. The locations of the meetings are as follows:

Faculty: Amherst Room, 1009 Campus Center
Staff: 904 Campus Center
Students: Reading Room, across from the Blue Wall

Every 10 years, the University of Massachusetts Amherst develops a comprehensive Self-Study as part of its re-accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). The Self-Study report was completed and mailed to NEASC on Sept. 18, 2009. It is presented here for review.

The 2009 Self-Study is a starting point for an external evaluation team, which is assembled by NEASC and is charged with appraising UMass Amherst operations. The re-accreditation process will culminate Nov. 1-4, when the evaluation team visits campus to meet with faculty, staff and students and to gain a firsthand knowledge of the institution.
