Whereas, The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) has acted to remove accreditation from City College of San Francisco (CCSF) by July 2014;
Whereas, The ACCJC's decision to disaccredit CCSF is being contested legally by at least three pending lawsuits, an unprecedented situation which has never been faced by colleges on accreditation sanction; and
Whereas, CCSF's current uncertain legal situation creates a confusing and at times politically charged environment for those faculty and other employees trying to develop and implement processes to comply with the Standards;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges to extend by one year the deadline for City College of San Francisco (CCSF) to comply with accreditation Standards and recommendations, due to the unprecedented legal situation faced by CCSF.
