“The New England Commission of Higher Education, one of six regional accrediting bodies in the United States, is a voluntary, non-profit, self-governing organization having as its primary purpose the accreditation of educational institutions. Through its evaluation activites, carried out by six commissions, the Association provides public assurance about the educational quality of those schools and colleges that seek or wish to maintain membership, which is synonymous with accreditation.”

The role of the College’s NECHE Accreditation Liaison Officer includes the dissemination of information relating to Accreditation Standards from the Commission on Higher Education, to coordinate and ensure that all required reports are completed within the timeframe the Commission mandates, to coordinate the assembly of committees and materials needed in report preparation or for self-study, and to assist the college in preparation for a NECHE Accreditation Team visit.
