Self-Study Process

Rutgers is in a period of profound change. Our recent integration with the majority of units of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey ("UMDNJ") and the many activities and initiatives associated with our multiple strategic planning processes, as well as the energy and enthusiasm driving these changes, make this an extremely opportune time to engage in a comprehensive University-wide self-study. Adopting the comprehensive model for our Self-Study, and organizing the Steering Committee and Working Groups around the revised Middle States Standards for Accreditation, represents a significant departure from our 2008 Self-Study. In that review Rutgers followed the Special Topics model, choosing to focus on the transformation of undergraduate education. Conducting an institutional analysis of this magnitude provides an opportunity to critically examine our overall performance and progress, and will help guide our efforts toward achieving our University goals and priorities.
