The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges has granted Qainnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., the maximum 10-year re-accreditation.

To achieve re-accreditation, Quinnipiac had to demonstrate that it meets or exceeds the criteria for the assessment of institutional quality applied through NEASC's peer review process. NEASC accredits universities that have the necessary resources to achieve their stated purposes through appropriate educational programs and give reasonable evidence they will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.

Institutional integrity also is addressed through the accreditation process.

Founded in 1885, the New England Association of Schools & Colleges, Inc., is the nation's oldest regional accrediting association whose mission is the establishment and maintenance of high standards for all levels of education, from pre-K to the doctoral level. NEASC serves some 1,800 public and independent schools, colleges and universities in the six New England states and approximately 80 American/International schools around the globe.

It is the only accrediting association nationwide to have created an office that encourages and promotes K-16 collaboration, the Office of School/ College Relations.

Researchers at Michigan Tech in Houghton are playing a major role in what many have dubbed the largest truly international scientific collaboration in history. More than 250 scientists from 50 institutions representing 19 countries have joined forces in an attempt to solve the mystery and find the source of high-energy cosmic rays that have bombarded the earth since the beginning of time and that may hold secrets to the creation of the universe.

The joint effort has been named the Pierre Auger Project, after the French scientist who discovered extensive showers of secondary subatomic particles caused by the collision of primary high-energy particles with air molecules in 1938.

The project plans to build two huge observatories at a cost of $50 million each, one in the southern hemisphere at a site near Mendoza, Argentina, and the other in the northern hemisphere in Millard County, Utah.
