New standards were adopted by the ACCJC in 2002 over the objections of the ASCCC.
Whereas new national standards for accreditation are being proposed, and
Whereas these are described as "threshold" standards to build on, and
Whereas historically "thresholds" "minimum" standards tend to become ceilings, and
Whereas our current standards have helped ensure the high quality of community colleges in California,
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges ask the Accrediting Commission to maintain the specificity in the current standards.
M/S/C Disposition: Accrediting Commission, Executive Committee, Local Senates
