SUNY Oswego’s Self-Study report (2022) was recently submitted to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education as a required part of the institutional re-accreditation process, and in advance of the evaluation team visit that will be held virtually March 6-9, 2022.

Our Self-Study describes and demonstrates how SUNY Oswego meets all Middle States Standards while adhering to our mission, strategic plan, and aligned institutional priorities of Student Success, Academic and Creative Excellence, Inclusive Community, Sustainable Institution, and Partnerships, which all guide our way. We proudly feature Inclusive Community as the third in a five-part series on our institutional priorities seen through the lens of our Self-Study.

A relationship-rich Inclusive Community is the ethos of SUNY Oswego’s learner-centered approachStudent Success and Academic and Creative Excellence are achieved when the campus community works together across divisions to form mentoring and professional relationships that value, inspire, elevate, and advance all students, faculty, and staff.
