As those of you who listened to the exit report from President Foster heard, our Middle States Accreditation review was successful, with the team determining that CSI met all seven of the standards that the accrediting body reviews. The review committee had several recommendations and suggestions for the campus that we will be discussing and planning for in the coming months, but the overall tone was positive, and the team recognized the commitment and dedication to CSI that extends through our faculty and staff. I would like to offer particular commendation to Tara Mastrorilli, Chris Miller, and Dante Tawfeeq, who successfully led the self-study process and also ensured that the virtual team visit went smoothly and that the members had the evidence they needed. I would also like to thank all of you who served on the standards committees, as well as those of you who participated in the various meetings during the site visit. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but this represents an important milestone in the ongoing evolution of our College, and we should all take this opportunity to both reflect and celebrate.
