KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS (KPI's) COMPARATIVE MEASURES
     
 

UMET'S DASHBOARD:

This virtual room is designed to provide evidence of compliance with requirements set forth by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education at its session of November 15, 2012, in which the Commission acted:

 


"To warn the institution that its accreditation may be in jeopardy because of insufficient evidence that the institution is currently in compliance with Standards 10 (Faculty), 12 (General Education), and 14 (Assessment of Student Learning). To note that the institution remains accredited while on warning. To request a monitoring report, due September 1, 2013, documenting evidence that the institution has achieved and can sustain compliance with Standards 10, 12, and 14."

 


INSTITUTIONAL CONTEXT:

Universidad Metropolitana (UMET) is a private, nonsectarian, non-profit higher education institution, with a wide range of academic offerings from professional certificates to doctoral degrees. It was founded in August, 1980, and since then has been fully accredited by the MSCHE. UMET is one of the institutions of the Sistema Universitario Ana G. Méndez (SUAGM, in English: Ana G. Méndez University System), a private, not for profit institution under the laws of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the Federal Government. Its members, Universidad del Turabo (UT), Universidad Metropolitana (UMET), Universidad del Este (UNE), and Ana G. Mendez Virtual University are comprehensive, coeducational higher education institutions; and Sistema TV, the only PBS station in Puerto Rico. Together, SUAGM and its five member institutions are the second largest private university system in Puerto Rico. By their location, history, and market area, they are Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI). SUAGM's central administration offices are located in San Juan, Puerto Rico and share its ground and physical facilities with UMET, which is a typical urban university, located in the midst of the greater San Juan metropolitan area (a suburb known as Cupey).

The total enrollment in 95 distinct programs of UMET, as reported in the most recent Institutional Profile is of 12,693 students. These are distributed in the Main Campus of Cupey, four additional locations within the Island (Aguadilla, Bayamón, Jayuya and Comerío), three branches in the state of Florida (Orlando, Miami and Tampa Bay) and a newly inaugurated branch in the state of Maryland (Wheaton).

Since last accreditation visit some major administrative changes have occurred. A new Chancellor, a new Vice Chancellor (CAO) and a new Associate Vice Chancellor for Licensing and Accreditation were appointed who have been affirmatively leading the establishment of precise and efficient means to address recommendations and requirements of the MSCHE Evaluation Team Final Report and the Commission's decision of November 15, 2012 meeting.
