The CSHSE Board is recruiting faculty from CSHSE-member programs to assist in the accreditation process. Readers and site visitors are volunteers who fulfill a critical role in maintaining CSHSE’s mission for quality, consistency, and relevance of Human Services education through evidence-based standards and a peer-review accreditation process.  Self-Study Readers are one part of a comprehensive review of Human Service programs that are seeking accreditation or reaccreditation. Committing to this process ensures that CSHSE’s standards and policies are maintained through a peer review process.  As a volunteer, Self-Study Readers do not receive payment for evaluating self-studies or participating in site visits.  CSHSE does provide reimbursement for all Site Visitors’ travel, meal, and lodging expenses.

To qualify as a reader, you must be a faculty member at CSHSE-member program and have teaching experience in a CSHSE member program. If you are interested in becoming a reader, please submit the following:

  • A cover letter stating your interest in participating and your reasons for participating, if you are from a CSHSE-accredited program, and the amount of time that you can commit.
  • A current curriculum vita
  • A letter of institutional support from either the Dean or Chair
  • A letter of reference

Please mail application material to: Winona Schappell, M.Ed, HS-BCP, PO Box 924, Fogelsville, PA 18051 or send electronically to
