Penn State’s Accreditation Reaffirmed

With the Thanksgiving holiday only a day away, I am thankful to share that on Thursday, Penn State’s accreditation was reaffirmed by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).

With the news of the lifted ‘warning,’ Penn State President Rodney Erickson shared, “While the excellence of our educational programs was never in question, it is reassuring that Middle States continues to recognize Penn State as a world-class academic institution that is stepping up to meet its current challenges.”

I want to reaffirm that I remain steadfast in my commitment to making your time at Penn State World Campus exceptional—from your curriculum to your faculty members to the service you receive from each and every person who answers the phone when you call. And, I am confident that we will continue to work through these challenging times better, stronger, and together.
