Penn State Receives Accreditation Warning From Middle States

We learned yesterday that, on August 6, the Executive Committee of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education acted "to warn the institution [Penn State] that its accreditation is in jeopardy based on information contained in the institutionally commissioned Report of the Special Investigative Counsel."  Although it seems utterly unimaginable that Middle States will actually strip Penn State's accreditation, this is very serious business - since the school would then become ineligible for federal research or student aid money.  

The letter from Middle States is here.
