The Periodic Review Report
Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students:
The draft of Hunter's Periodic Review Report (PRR) to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is now accessible from the homepage of the College's website, and we welcome your comments on it. All you will need is your Hunter NetID and password to access the draft. Please know that the draft is just that—a draft—and it is far from perfect. With your help, we will be working over the next few weeks to address the inaccuracies, omissions, repetitions, and typographical errors contained in it, for which the Office of the Provost is solely responsible. The College will submit its final report to MSCHE by June 1st.
The Periodic Review Report (PRR) includes the following sections: 1) an executive summary, 2) a summary description of the institution's responses to recommendations from the previous evaluation and to Commission actions, 3) a brief narrative identifying the institution's major challenges and/or current opportunities, 4) analysis of enrollment and financial data, 5) evidence of sustained and organized processes to assess institutional effectiveness and student learning, and evidence that the results of such processes are being used to improve programs and services and to inform planning and resource allocation decisions, and 6) evidence that linked institutional planning and budgeting processes are in place.
As you read the draft, please keep in mind that we are not permitted to use external hyperlinks in the PRR and we are still in the process of assembling a complete set of appendices. You will also note that two tables in section 6 are under construction.
Please send your comments for consideration, large and small, to email@example.com by Friday, May 16th. For a discussion of the larger issues raised in the draft report, we invite you to an open meeting of the Hunter College Senate on Wednesday, May 14th at 3:30pm in room 714HW.
We want to take this opportunity to thank the PRR Steering Committee and all the members of the PRR subcommittees who have made outstanding contributions to this report over the last 8 months.
Thank you for interest and support, and for all you do for Hunter College.
Vita C. Rabinowitz
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
