Holy Cross Earns Re-accreditation

October 27, 2000

Dear Holy Cross Community:

It is my pleasure to inform you I was notified recently that Holy Cross received continued accreditation for another ten years by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC).

This good news was not unexpected but it was never taken for granted. It is the result of more than a year’s worth of effort by a committee of faculty, administrators and students. They researched and wrote an important self-study document and, with the involvement of many members of our community, hosted a visit by a team of NEASC officials to complete the assessment.

The NEASC report indicates that Holy Cross is a vibrant and impressive institution with many virtues. It is a wonderful tribute to the hard work of all who participated.

I look forward to working with all of you to make Holy Cross even stronger.


Michael C. McFarland, S.J. President
