Middle States Self-Study Report:

Point Park University’s Self-Study report summarizes the most important developments at the University since its last Self Study in 2010 and its PRR in 2014-2015. This Self-Study affirms the University meets all articles of affiliation and criteria for the seven Middle States standards. As importantly, the University has used the Self-Study process to evaluate what it does well and what it can improve.
