Role of accreditation at Murray State University
In general, the goal of accreditation at U.S. universities is to ensure that the education provided by institutions meets or exceeds acceptable levels of quality. Murray State University maintains both regional accreditation and a wide range of discipline accreditations in order to provide the public and our campus constituents with accurate information related to productivity, performance, and results. As the MSU Value Statements and The MSU Comprehensive Plan indicate, Murray State University values a comprehensive accountability system through accreditation, outcomes assessment, measurement of accomplishments, and established indicators of institutional effectiveness.
