| About | Recognition and Accreditation
Worcester State University is proud to have received national and regional acclaim for our sound academics, community service, green initiatives, and more.
Our 10-year reaccreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges in 2012 demonstrates that we meet or exceed its
criteria for institutional quality. The chair of NEASC’s Commission on
Institutions of Higher Education observed: “We are heartened to learn of WSU’s
commitment to student success as evidenced by the recent establishment of the
Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement, expanded academic governance
structures, plans to increase full-time faculty by 15 over the next three
years, and an increase of retention rates to an average of 60% over the last
four years, up from 37% five years ago.” View full report.
