Haverford’s system of institutional effectiveness (IE) is designed to evaluate and improve the full range of services and programs, and to support the collective achievement of our educational mission as expressed in the Statement of Purpose. We identify our direction and measure our progress through a holistic process of planning and assessment. Haverford College has been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education since 1921.
Charting our direction and identifying key issues at all levels across the College engage a broad series of voices and results in clear, coherent and achievable priorities. Planning is monitored and revised through detailed assessment processes.
The examination and evaluation of our policies, practices, and student learning outcomes are crucial to comprehensive institutional improvement, implemented through evidence-based planning.
Haverford College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The College completed the most recent self-study in 2010, submitted a Periodic Review Report in 2015, and a follow-up report in 2017.
The Office of Institutional Research at Haverford College supports campus decision-making, policy development, assessment, and accreditation activities in relation to the College's educational mission.
