Meet the MSCHE Evaluation Team


As part of the self-study process, representatives of Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) will visit Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology from Sunday, March 19, 2017 to Wednesday, March 22, 2017. During this visit, team members will meet with students, faculty, staff, administrators, board of trustees, alumni, and external constituents to discuss the self-study document and to ascertain whether the contents of the self-study document can be verified by the Thaddeus Stevens College community: In other words, to see if the TSCT community can talk the talk and walk the walk.

The visiting team is composed of education professionals whose institutions are within the purview of MSCHE. These individuals, who are volunteers selected by Middle States, have experience with the accreditation process and are familiar with the College's self-study document, which was published in December 2016.
