Progress on Self-Study Areas for Improvements (AOI)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​In 2017, AUB conducted a two-year self-study of the academic and administrative operations of by faculty, staff, and graduate and undergraduate students, in application for reaccreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). At the same time, AUB embarked on the development of a new institutional strategic plan “VITAL 2030" and a campus master plan guided by the institutional mission, and launched the most ambitious capital campaign in its history “BOLDLY AUB- the Campaign to Lead, Innovate & Serve".

The self-study identified 21 areas for improvement within their purviews. The Steering Committee for the Self-Study reviewed these 21 areas and proposed a subset of 12 chapter-specific recommendations and one overall recommendation, which are actionable and tied to strategic priorities, and that will have an immediate and substantive impact on the institution. These 13 self-Identified actionable areas for improvements (AOI) were also endorsed by the MSCHE Evaluation Team.

In June 2019, MSCHE has reaffirmed its accreditation​ of AUB for eight years until the academic year 2027-28.

Over the past two year since reaccreditation, AOIs were aligned and integrated with the institutional strategic plan VITAL. A number of the AOIs were kicked off for implementation. A plan was drafted, shared with the BOD for feedback and approval. Below is a brief description of progress on the initiatives to meet these AOIs.​
