CUMBERLAND, Md. – The Middle States Commission on Higher Education, which recently evaluated Allegany College of Maryland for institutional and educational effectiveness, has reaffirmed its accreditation through 2022-23.

 The regional accrediting agency’s approval, issued at a mid-November meeting, follows a comprehensive review of the college as a whole and of individual units.

 The process included an institutional self-study and an onsite evaluation by a team of nine community college executives, administrators and faculty members.

 Middle States examines for 14 standards that demonstrate its Characteristics of Excellence in Higher Education in colleges seeking accreditation.

 The 14 are divided evenly among overall institutional operations and aspects of the education and related services that a college delivers to students and the community.

 Institutional standards include such wide-ranging areas as mission and goals; planning resource allocation and institutional renewal; leadership and governance; administration and institutional assessment.

 Educational effectiveness pertains to such standards as student admissions and retention; student support services; faculty; educational offerings; general education and assessment of student learning.

 “We are pleased that Allegany College of Maryland has been fully accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education,” said ACM’s president, Dr. Cynthia Bambara.

 “This external validation reaffirms that the college continues to move in the right direction of providing excellence in education.”

 Added Kim Leonard, chair of ACM’s Board of Trustees: “Quality higher education that is both affordable and accessible is a hallmark of our institution. ACM will continue to provide education and services to meet the needs of our students.”

 The Middles States Commission on Higher Education is responsible for more than 525 accredited and candidate institutions in, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

 ACM received its initial Middles States accreditation four years after its 1961 founding. The college’s accreditation was last affirmed in 2010.

 More information about the commission’s action can be found at Middle States’ website, www.msche.org. More information about ACM is available at www.allegany.edu.
