Self-Study Design & Timeline

The New York Institute of Technology Self-Study Design identifies the intended outcomes of the self-study process and the themes of inquiry that will position New York Tech to achieve its strategic vision and mission. It also sets up a timeline for the overall process. The design will enable New York Tech to confirm its alignment with the seven MSCHE standards of accreditation, as well as the requirements of affiliation and verification of compliance with federal regulations.

New York Institute of Technology’s original strategic plan was envisioned as a living document with modifications expected when appropriate. The self-study provides the vehicle to integrate strategic planning with the assessment of its effectiveness. Each of the seven standards for accreditation will be assigned to a working group. A steering committee oversees the working groups. The reports submitted by the working groups, under the direction of the steering committee, will provide New York Tech with recommendations for institutional improvement. The self-study analysis and recommendations for improvement will help New York Tech position the institution for advancing its strategic plan.
