Accreditation Process

A Steering Committee representing the various constituencies of the university has been formed to draft a campus self-study report and to help prepare the campus for the 2008 visit.

The self-study will examine our progress since the last visit, evaluate changes we have made to ensure program excellence and to assess student success, and analyze the steps under way to provide ongoing assessment and improvement.

The Higher Learning Commission has just adopted a set of criteria for evaluation that went into effect in 2004-2005. The five criteria areas, which will be in effect when NMSU comes up for re-accreditation in 2008, are:

  • Mission and Integrity
  • Preparing for the Future
  • Student Learning and Effective Teaching
  • Acquisition, Discovery and Application of Knowledge
  • Engagement and Service
