UVM Self-Study | NECHE Accreditation

A message from Tom Sullivan, President

I am pleased to present the University of Vermont’s decennial Self-Study Report for re-accreditation.  This is the culmination of a year and a half of work by multiple committees comprised of faculty, staff, students, and administrators, and with input from all campus constituencies.  It is a comprehensive, honest, evidence-based self-assessment of UVM as an institution of higher education: who we are, how we function, and what we aspire to be.  It describes how we have measured ourselves against NECHE’s (New England Commission on Higher Education) standards and used the findings to inform plans for the future. 

I am pleased with the self-reflection that occurred throughout the process and the resulting insights about what we do well and what we must still seek to improve.  I am proud of the efforts of all who contributed to it, especially the academic and administrative leaders who coordinated the effort and assembled the narrative and supporting documents. I am confident you will find the report to be interesting as well as informative. 

The NECHE visiting team, chaired by Dr. David Dooley, President of the University of Rhode Island, will be conducting their fact-finding review on March 24-27, 2019.  Information of the visiting team’s schedule will be available shortly, which will include open-forums for faculty, staff, and students to meet with the team. The team will make recommendations to the Commission and the Commission itself will take the final action.

Again, I want to thank all members of the University community for their efforts and preparing the self-study.
