NEASC continues accreditation of Bentley College

January 21, 2003

Bentley College's regional accrediting agency, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), requires all institutions to undergo a full re-accreditation review every 10 years, with follow-up reviews as appropriate. In 1999-2000, Bentley conducted a ten-year self-study addressing standards established by NEASC and examining whether the college is successful in meeting Bentley's own mission objectives related to each standard.

In the spring of 2002, a visiting team of external evaluators, all individuals in institutions of higher education and other nonprofit organizations who are experts in each of the standards, met with many people across campus, including faculty, staff and students.

Bentley College is pleased to report that the result of this visit and the self-study was a recommendation for continuing full accreditation. A copy of the letter from the Commission is available online at:
