Harvard University is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
This year Harvard University is preparing for its fall 2009 reaccreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Harvard, like all accredited universities and colleges, is reviewed for reaccreditation generally every 10 years. The process includes the preparation of a self-study in which the University evaluates itself on a range of academic, financial, physical and other criteria; a visit by a committee of external faculty and senior administrators during which they discuss issues raised in the self-study and draft a report and recommendation to NEASC; and finally, a response from NEASC in spring 2010. Margo Seltzer, Herchel Smith Professor of Computer Science, serves as the Faculty Chair of the self-study process and is working with colleagues and student groups across the University.
The Harvard community and public can submit feedback to NEASC by October 21, 2009. For more information, see the Harvard Gazette.
