Middle States Self-Study Report

Published March 14, 2014

Dear University Community:

I am pleased to share with you UB’s Self-Study Report compiled for the Middle States Commission on Higher Education decennial review, available at  From this self-study, it is evident that UB faces a bright and purposeful future. 

Sustaining accreditation requires UB to supply evidence that we meet fourteen standards of excellence.  UB’s comprehensive self-study, “Framework for Excellence”, provides this evidence, affirming the strength and quality of our institution.    

I would like to offer my thanks to the hundreds of faculty and staff members who have contributed to the development of UB’s self-study report.  I look forward to continued collaboration with you as we create UB’s future.
