As the Middle States Committee begins preparation for the first draft of the self-study, each subcommittee has prepared a response to the research questions they have proposed. Committee 4 questions are as follows:

o How do our current processes ensure quality and coherence of the academic programs to the mission of the College?

o How does the Nazareth core provide students with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to be independent thinkers, problem-solvers, superior communicators, able to use and evaluate information, and, in addition, able to integrate, reflect and apply their learning beyond the core?

o How do innovative initiatives that are in place or in progress ensure adherence to the College’s mission, policies, academic standards and assessment practices?

o How do our assessment processes demonstrate and enable improvement, provide an integrated learning environment and inform institutional decision-making?
