CUNY Workshop on Middle States Accreditation


On March 10, 2015, the CUNY Office of Academic Affairs will be holding a workshop on linking planning, budgeting, and assessment. The relationship between planning, budgeting, and assessment is currently a major focus of MSCHE Standard 7. Under the new Middle States standards, those functions will be shifted to Standard VI.

This workshop is particularly important, as MSCHE is placing increasing weight on strategic planning, along with linkages with resource allocation and assessment. MSCHE anticipates a world in which strategic planning and resource allocation driven by that planning (not the other way around, even if finance-driven planning is the easier path) will be of even greater importance than it is today. The successful college or university will need to define its own clear purpose, compelling vision, inspirational values, and then chart its own deliberative course into the future with clear evidence that planning, budgeting, and assessment are well-integrated in seamless fashion.

The workshop details are as follows:

Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2015
Time: 8:30 AM – 1: 30 PM
Location: CUNY Central (205 East 42nd Street), Conference Room 42-0818 (8th Floor)
Miscellaneous: Breakfast and lunch will be offered
