Middle States Accreditation

Welcome to the Hostos Middle States Self-Study Site!

The Hostos Middle States Self-Study Co-Chairs Professors Kate Wolfe and Nelson Nuñez Rodríguez welcome you to Hostos three-year Middle States Accreditation journey. This website has been created to provide a single place to the whole college community in order to remain engaged with the college Middle States Self-Study. Currently, Hostos Community College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) and looks forward to renewing the accreditation in 2022.

This site contains documents relating to the Self-Study, including the Self-Study Design (SSD), the current status of the Self-Study process (timeline) at Hostos, members of the Steering Committee and all standards-based working group members, Self-Study updates, recorded college-wide forums and any other presentations. After each college-wide open forum, there will be an opportunity to submit questions which will be replied to in aggregate form by the Steering Committee Co-Chairs.

The site also contains a history page with previous 2012 Self-Study report and other pertinent midpoint periodic reports submitted to Middle States between 2012 and 2019. Furthermore, the site provides a link to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

Finally, there is an area in which you can provide feedback to the Steering Committee about the website, the Self-Study process, and your opinions about uploaded materials. We look forward to having a participatory, transparent and thoughtful Self-Study journey including all college voices. It is our hope to bring the institution to a better place with this exercise.

Welcome again and we look forward to hearing your opinions. All voices matter! Stay engaged.

Professors Kate Wolfe and Nelson Nuñez Rodríguez
