Welcome to Salem Community College’s (SCC) Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) 2016 Information Page. This page is meant to share information with College constituents pertaining to SCC’s Middle States Self-Study and MSCHE visit.
Salem Community College is accredited by Middle States Commission on Higher Education. “Accreditation is intended to strengthen and sustain higher education, making it worthy of public confidence and minimizing the scope of external control” (MSCHE Self-Study – Creating a Useful Process and Report). For the past three years, the Self-Study document has been a work in progress. Representatives from all areas of the College came together, discussed what was working, what needed improvement, gathered evidence and told the story. On February 29, 2016 the SCC Self-Study document was submitted to MSCHE in preparation for their visit.
Beginning April 11 through April 13, 2016, MSCHE evaluators will be on campus to learn more about SCC. These evaluators will compile a report and share its contents on April 13, 2016.
