UMass Dartmouth's Self-Study Report
For the past year and a half, the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission's Standards for Accreditation. During its visit, the evaluation team will gather evidence to assure that the Self-Study Report is thorough and accurate. The team will recommend to the Commission a continuing status for the institution. Then, following a review process, the Commission itself will take the final action.
