Accreditation

Background material for the Accreditation Report:

Accreditation Standards are open for review.

Here is an incomplete draft of potential suggestions.

We will see a resolution about this at the Spring Plenary

 

In this public comment period, it may be interesting to look at other accrediting institutions' standards; here are three examples:

 

North Central Association Higher Learning Commission

http://policy.ncahlc.org/Policies/criteria-for-accreditation.html

Middle States Commission on Higher Education

https://www.msche.org/publications/CHX-2011-WEB.pdf

Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities

Accreditation Resolution:

ACCJC is out of compliance with several USDE Criteria for Recognition

The context for this finding can be found within the ASCCC's summary of Accreditation News and Events

http://www.asccc.org/content/accreditation-news-and-events

ACCJC has said that they only accept comments and critique from member institutions, not professional organizations such as the ASCCC, CTF, CCLC, or others.

 

 

College Council

 

 

AAAG (met March 19)

Approved administrative ability to insert GEOs on the Curricunet form for GE courses. (Alternative is to ask individual faculty members to do this). What does Academic Senate think?
