The Work of Self-Study

Unlike in previous Self-Studies, the workgroups will focus on a short list of strategic priorities identified in the Self-Study Design.  Emanating from the Strategic Plan, those institutional priorities are:

  • Enhance Hunter’s Academic Identity as a Research Institution
  • Foster Interdisciplinary Learning and Scholarship
  • Broaden Opportunities for Student Success
  • Expand and deepen engagement with New York City neighborhoods and institutions

The priorities allow the Self-Study to demonstrate institutional improvement and innovation in the context of Mission and strategic planning, a dynamic analysis that captures institutional direction and momentum.  The driving force is continuous, evidence-based assessment of student learning and all functions that support learning.  The fundamental question in accreditation is whether an institution is fulfilling its mission and achieving its goals, guided by expectations for integrity and ethical practice.
