Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is a group of faculty and administrators responsible for ensuring a thorough and participatory process that responds successfully to the accreditation standards and guidelines set forth by Middle States. They are overseeing the reaccreditation effort as a whole, in identifying leaders and participants for the six working groups that are engaging the accreditation standards, and in determining how Albright can best use the self-study process to raise and address questions of strategic importance to the College and its future. Specifically, this work will become the foundation for the College’s next strategic plan.
