FIT chose a comprehensive model for the self-study which enabled the college to appraise every aspect of its programs and services, governing and supporting structures, resources, and educational outcomes in relation to our mission and goals.
A draft of the self-study document was made available to the FIT community in mid-October and two public hearings were held on October 25. Comments and feedback were integrated into a new version which was sent to the chair of the Middle States evaluation team who visited FIT on December 5. A final draft was produced in January of 2012 and shared with the FIT community. The evaluation team visited the FIT campus April 15 - 18, 2012.
