Announcements

July 18, 2017

Faculty and Staff

Dear Colleagues:

I am pleased to report that we received notification from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) of its approval of Winthrop University’s Fifth-Year Interim Report. The Committee on Fifth-Year Interim Reports reviewed the institution’s compliance with the 17 select standards of the Principles of Accreditation outlined in the Commission’s Fifth-Year Interim Report and requested no additional report.

Winthrop’s Quality Enhancement Plan Impact Report on the Global Learning Initiative was also part of the fifth-year report and was accepted without follow-up.

As mentioned in this press release, Winthrop University is in compliance with the multiple accreditation standards covered in the report, including institutional effectiveness regarding educational programs; program curriculum; policy compliance; Title IX program responsibilities/financial aid audits; student support services; and physical facilities, among others.

We also received notification from SACSCOC that Winthrop has been moved from the Reaffirmation Class of 2021 to the Class of 2022. This move was necessary because of imbalances in the size of the various reaffirmation classes.

I credit the hard work of our faculty, staff, administrators, and students in helping to achieve this status. This good news is the reflection of a continuous cycle of assessment, evaluation, and improvement that is a critical part of institutional excellence.

IN THE HEART OF THE CAROLINAS
