Dear Mr. Malloy:

The New England Commission of Higher Education is pleased to confirm that  Dr. Donald L. Birx will serve as chair of the team that will undertake the evaluation of your institution in Spring 2021. The chair’s address, together with other information pertinent to the on-site visit, can be found on the Evaluation Summary Sheet (External PDF).

The Commission strongly encourages a preliminary visit by the team chair to the institution in the semester prior to the review. This visit enables the chair to become familiar with the nature of the institution, its staff and faculty, local logistics, and the emphases of the self-study. Now that your chair has been confirmed, it would be appropriate for you to connect and to set a date for the preliminary visit.

The NECHE Evaluation Manual (External PDF) should be helpful to you in defining the numerous details of the forthcoming visit. Please do not hesitate to call on the Commission staff throughout the evaluation process if you have any questions or concerns.


Aaron K. Perkus
Vice President
