Middle States has rigorous standards that serve as a framework for institutional effectiveness and academic performance. As part of reaccreditation, every 10 years the University engages in a comprehensive and reflective process to demonstrate its commitment to these standards and to continuous improvement. The process consists of:
- an institutional self-study
- a peer review that includes a site visit
- a process for continuing examination and improvement.
The MSCHE peer review team visited the UB campus March 13 to March 15, 2017.
