Dear Students, Staff and Faculty:
As you know, a visiting team representing the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) will visit Smith from October 29 to November 1 as part of Smith’s ten-year reaccreditation process. The visit represents an important milestone in a collaborative process undertaken over the past two years that involved students, faculty, staff and trustees, all of whom contributed to our self-study narrative.
The team’s visit will culminate in a public report of preliminary findings presented by the NEASC team chair, Christina Paxson, president of Brown University.
I invite all students, staff and faculty to attend this presentation Wednesday, November 1 from 11 a.m. - noon in the Campus Center Carroll Room. I look forward to hearing from President Paxson about the team’s assessment of our institutional strengths as well as recommended areas of focus as we plan for Smith’s future.
