Public comment invited; Self-study completed


In preparation for Miami University's periodic accreditation review, the university has completed an extensive self-study. Its accrediting agency, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, is seeking comments on Miami from the public and from Miami faculty, staff, students, and alumni.

The self-study report and comments received will be studied by the 12 members of the HLC's evaluation team prior to its site-visit to the Oxford, Hamilton and Middletown campuses Jan. 31-Feb. 2.

"Hundreds of faculty, staff and students generously contributed information and insights during the two-year self-study process. The resulting report celebrates our many strengths and identifies key areas to address as we continue to pursue our aspirations," said Paul Anderson, chair of the accreditation steering committee and professor of English.

Other members of the accreditation steering committee are faculty and staff members Sara Butler, Cheryl Evans, Raymond Gorman, Dennis Roberts, Jerry Stonewater and John Williams.

The self-study report may be downloaded from For information on submitting a comment to the HLC by the Jan. 7 deadline, go to the same site.
