Middle States Self-Study Town Hall Meetings
The draft of Catholic University’s Middle States Self-Study report, an online form to solicit feedback about it, and the schedule for a series of town hall meetings are posted on the CUA Web site at http://provost.cua.edu/msche. At the town hall meetings, all members of the CUA community will have a chance to share their thoughts about the 180-page draft of the report, which addresses how CUA meets the Middle States Commission’s 14 “Characteristics of Excellence” standards. The report also highlights how, since 2000, the university has progressed in five areas: improving undergraduate education, enhancing support for graduate students, introducing new professional graduate programs, enhancing extramural research support and designing a strategy for strengthening CUA’s financial base.

The town hall meetings are the final step in the research and documentation used to create the self-study report. It is expected that feedback from the town hall meetings will help to refine the report.

The meetings, hosted by the Middle States Self-Study Steering Committee, are:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2 to 3 p.m., Pryzbyla Center, Great Room A 
  • Thursday, Jan. 14, 3 to 4 p.m., Pryzbyla Center, Room 321/323
  • Tuesday, Jan. 19, 5 to 6 p.m. (to accommodate evening students), Pryzbyla Center, Great Room A 
  • Monday, Jan. 25, 2 to 3 p.m., Pryzbyla Center, Great Room A 

Mid-Year Job Fair
The Office of Career Services will hold a Mid-Year Job Fair on Thursday, Jan. 14, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Pryzbyla Center, Great Room.
