From President Alison Byerly
- During the years 2017-19, Lafayette College will once again undergo the process of accreditation through MSCHE, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. While this periodic endeavor always calls forth great energy, commitment, and good will from many individuals and constituencies, the process this time will be even more inclusive and focused than in the past, as Middle States has revised its own understanding of accreditation to focus less on compliance and more on institutional self-reflection. Who are we as a college? Who do we want to be? What are our values? Do we have the means and opportunities to respond to the academic challenges of the early 21st century? These are the questions we are being asked to explore through our self-study process.
