The Middle States Re-Accreditation Steering Committee has finalized the Priorities, Outcomes, and Lines of Inquiry that will serve as the framework for how the Working Groups assigned to each re-accreditation Standard will evaluate York College’s fulfillment of the Standard’s criteria. Forty-six members of the YCP community, including faculty, staff, administrators, Board of Trustee members, and alumni have agreed to serve on Middle State Working Groups, and current students will also be invited to participate in the process. The Working Groups will begin their work in Fall 2023. A website has been created to post information about our Middle States Re-Accreditation process. Information about the Priorities, Outcomes, and Lines of Inquiry, Working Group membership, events, and opportunities to provide feedback and to participate in the process, which extends through Spring 2025, is available on this website.

York College begins the two year Self Study accreditation process in Spring 2023. Patrice DiQuinzio (Interim Provost) serves as the chief academic officer for the Self Study, and Holly Sypniewski (Director of Faculty Development and Global Initiatives) and Kay McAdams (Associate Professor of History and Director of General Education) serve as co-chairs of the Self Study. The leadership Steering Committee comprised of Working Group chairs, each of which is assigned to evaluate a Middle States Standard of Accreditation, held its first meeting on January 10, 2023 to launch its work. This spring, the goal of the Middle States Steering Committee is to draft a Self Study Design proposal, and to establish Working Groups for each Standard. Working Groups will be potentially comprised of faculty, staff, administrators, students, alumni, and Board of Trustee members. Information about the process can be obtained from Kay McAdams or Holly Sypniewski, and if you are interested in assisting with the Self-Study please contact Kay or Holly. We will update the YCP community periodically throughout the process.
