Middlebury’s most recent comprehensive evaluation for reaccreditation by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) was in 2019.

Provost Jeff Cason and Associate Provost for Planning LeRoy Graham co-chaired the Reaccreditation Steering Committee that oversaw this process. 

The visiting team’s report, Middlebury’s response to that report, and NECHE’s final determination will be completed and posted on this site by the end of the 2019-20 academic year. 

Self-Study

A significant part of the evaluation includes writing a self-study, a 100-page document that covers the standards for accreditation as defined by NECHE.  LeRoy Graham and Adela Langrock drafted this document with input from the Steering Committee and individuals and groups from across the institution.

Accreditation Visiting Team

NECHE appointed a review team made up of eight professionals from colleges and universities who have a broad range of knowledge and expertise.  This team was responsible for carrying out the review and writing a report that is submitted to NECHE. Members of the review team visited Middlebury’s Language Schools, Bread Loaf School of English, the Institute, the School Abroad in Jordan and the College for a series of meetings with staff, faculty, and students.  

Dr. Ronald Crutcher, President of the University of Richmond, served as the chair of the review team.
