            Self-Study

            The primary purpose of the Self-Study Report is to advance institutional self-understanding and self-improvement.

            We are asked to demonstrate that we meet the expectations of the , and relevant federal regulations, and that we evaluate the extent to which we are accomplishing our mission and related goals, making improvements when deemed appropriate by key institutional constituents.

            As required by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), we have established a Self-Study Steering Committee whose members will guide the self-study process and a set of Working Groups who will concentrate on specific requirements. We have also identified the Institutional Priorities to Be Addressed by the Self-Study and the Intended Outcomes of the Self-Study.

            The Self-Study Milestone Timeline provides an overview of the complete self-study process, which will be completed in 北京福彩网. A more detailed timeline reports the work planned for working groups and the steering committee. Finally, the communication timeline describes how we intend to ensure active involvement of every university constituency.

            We are part the first cohort of schools assessing with a and a new process. In this new framework, we need to address, clearly and at all levels, the question: How did you use assessment results?

            If you have any questions, suggestions or comments about the self-study process and how we will conduct it at AUP, please consult our How to Get Involved page for details on how to provide feedback and how to participate in the self-study.

             

            Institutional Priorities to be Addressed by the Self-Study

            As in the past, the University has aligned its own planning calendar with that of the MSCHE reporting-year requirements, such that the self-study and the strategic plan are prepared concurrently. AUP’s Strategic Plan 2015-北京福彩网 is the fruit of an institutional process designed to generate a shared vision of the University’s future as a thriving and independent institution,. It aims to stabilize, by means of targeted and diversified recruitment its worldwide recruitment function and to align its curriculum and student services with its ideal student. Its ambition is to broaden its visibility and advance its academic reputation and to set achievable objectives for and measures of institutional advancement and sustainability in the volatile current climate of higher education and in the local context in which the University operates. 

             In 2013-2014, we launched both the period of self-study necessary to produce the Periodic Review Report (PRR) and the planning process that would yield the strategic plan. AUP Ascending (the Strategic Plan 2015-北京福彩网) was the result of two years of sustained and shared institutional assessment and planning, in which faculty, staff, leadership team, board and even students participated. We intend to repeat that, very successful experience by aligning the institutional priorities evaluated through the self-study with the five priorities identified in our strategic plan:

            1. Building a Learning Community of Global Explorers
            2. Creating a Global Liberal Arts Curriculum and Multiple Pathways to International Careers
            3. Designing a Campus for AUP’s Global Community
            4. Communicating AUP Global Reach
            5. Achieving Institutional Sustainability

            Intended Outcomes of the Self-Study

            As a result of the self-study process we aim at achieving the following outcomes:

            1. Demonstrate how the institution currently meets Middle States Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation;
            2. Demonstrate focus on continuous improvement in the attainment of the institution’s mission and its institutional priorities;
            3. Engage the institutional community in an inclusive and transparent self-appraisal process;
            4. Evaluate progress against current strategic priorities as defined in AUP's Strategic Plan 2015-北京福彩网 and make recommendations for the 北京福彩网-2025 strategic plan ensuring smooth integration of the assessment processes;
            5. Leverage the work for the evidence inventory to initiate the process and investigate the tools necessary to build a solid and sustainable institutional archive including a policies library.
