PRESS RELEASE: FACCC Applauds Community College Board of Governors Action on Accreditation

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someonePrint this page

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California Community College Board of Governors unanimously voted today to formally adopt the recommendations of the Task Force on Accreditation. The Task Force released a report in late August citing a lack of confidence in the system’s current accrediting agency, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), and calling for an exploration of alternative accreditation options. The Board of Governors resolution includes a recommendation for action to establish a new model for an accrediting agency and develop an implementation plan.

The California Community College Board of Governors joins FACCC, the California Community College Trustees Board, the Chief Executive Officers of the California Community Colleges, the Academic Senate of the California Community College, the California Teachers Association, the California Federation of Teachers, the California Community College Independents, and nearly 200 other stakeholders in endorsing the Task Force findings.

“This vote allows our system to embrace a stronger and smarter accreditation process,” said Jonathan Lightman, FACCC Executive Director. FACCC expresses its appreciation to the Board of Governors for taking action on this critical issue and looks forward to the implementation of the report.”
