NEASC Fifth Year Report

Dear MassArt Community,

In January 2010, MassArt will submit a Fifth Year Report to the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). You may recall that in 2005, we submitted our 10-year self study jointly to NEASC and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). The Fifth Year Report consists of updates on any areas of concern noted in the Commission's response to our self study, updates to the 11 standards for accreditation and a series of data forms. The Commission will review and take action on the report in spring 2010.

A core team has been working on this project since spring 2009. We invite any comments that you may have on the draft. Once the report is submitted to NEASC, a copy of the complete report including the narrative, appendices and data forms will be available in the President's office and the library. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Julie Walsh (617 879 7073 or
