NEASC Reaccreditation

 In 2012, Wentworth received notice of its full reaccreditation by NEASC, following a self-study report that analyzed Wentworth’s effectiveness as a teaching and learning institution and assessed the extent to which the Institute met each of 11 standards for accreditation. View the reaccreditation letter from NEASC.

As part of the reaccreditation process, the Institute was required to submit a fifth-year interim report for consideration in August 2016. The purpose of the fifth-year report is to review how the institution continues to meet the Standards for Accreditation  and progress since the last comprehensive evaluation; to prepare a reflective essay on student learning; to project areas of focus for the next five years leading up to the next comprehensive review in 2021; to serve as a vehicle for stimulating improvements within the institution; and to support NEASC in its role of assuring the public of the quality of the institution.

A steering committee was convened to prepare the fifth-year interim report to the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). The committee was led by Cidhinnia M. Torres Campos, PhD, director of accreditation and institutional assessment. Constituents from across campus were involved in drafting the final report submitted to the Commission. View the final report to NEASC.

In December 2016, then-President Pantic received notice that the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education accepted the report and confirmed the comprehensive evaluation scheduled for fall 2021. The letter was complimentary of the work that Wentworth had accomplished in the last 5 years. They also identified three areas of emphasis for our self-study report in preparation for the comprehensive visit. View the Commission’s response.
