Self-Study Design & Standards Workgroups



Self-Study Design and Process

The Middle States Self-Study process provides an opportunity for Bowie State to demonstrate that the University meets the Standards of Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation, and to self-examine what the university does well and where there are opportunities for improvement.

The Self-Study Design was selected by Middle States as a model of excellence and shared with other institutions attending the Middle States 2019 Self-Study Institute.

The workgroups will apply the “Standards-Based Approach” in the review and evaluation of compliance for each standard. The application of three institutional priorities of academic excellence, student success, and viability of the university will be included in the charge for each standards-based workgroup. The theme for the Self-Study process is Racing to Reaffirmation which is a deliberate link to the current strategic plan. During the self-study process, Bowie State will examine not only the specific requirements of each standard, but also the activities that advance academic excellence, innovation, and student success - key elements of the strategic plan. Undergoing a productive and inclusive self-study will reinforce the impact Bowie State has on the surrounding community, external partnerships, and its mission to empower a diverse population of students as they prepare for careers, lifelong learning, and civic responsibility.
