Accreditation is a means of self-regulation and peer review adopted by the educational community. The accrediting process is intended to strengthen and sustain the quality and integrity of higher education, making it worthy of public confidence.
As a member of the Middle States Association (MSA), Stony Brook University is accredited according to the guidelines and standards set forth by the MSA, Commission on Higher Education (CHE), and subject to a self-study and peer review on a decennial basis.
In furtherance of this process, this Web site is designed to facilitate the self-study process, provide information on reaccreditation, and provide links to important accreditation information.
