NEASC Standards Self Study

In October 2006, Charter Oak State College had its reaccreditation visit by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), one of six regional accrediting bodies in the United States. Through its evaluation activities, NEASC provides public assurance about the educational quality of schools and colleges that seek or wish to maintain accreditation. View NEASC's standards for accreditation.

As part of the reaccreditation process, Charter Oak was required to develop a self-study document which addressed the 11 accreditation standards. The process required that we involve our faculty, staff, and students in reviewing the standards, examining the College's strengths, weaknesses, and accomplishments, and projecting our goals for the future.

The results of the self-study are now available:
