The Middle States Periodic Review Report

The Periodic Review Report (PRR) is a follow-up to the Self-Study that Baruch College completed in 2010. The PRR, like the Self-Study is a retrospective, current and prospective analysis conducted by the Baruch Community and led by a task-force that prepares the study. Middle States considers the PRR of equal importance to the Self-Study in the accreditation cycle in which the College demonstrates that it meets the standards set by the Middle States Commission for continued accredited status. The documents below outline the purposes of and guidelines for preparing the PRR which is due by June 15th, 2015. Middle States recommends that preparation of the PRR begin two years preceding the due date.
