2020 Institutional Self-Evaluation Report

As part of the college’s commitment to continuous improvement, the Institutional Self Evaluation Report (ISER) in support of the college’s reaffirmation of accreditation is written as a comprehensive review of the college.  The Accreditation Standing Committee is asking members of the college community and members of the communities the college serves to review the ISER and provide feedback, corrections, or additional information that will support the college’s accreditation re-affirmation visit in March of 2021.

The Accreditation Standing Committee will post sections of the ISER to this website over the next several weeks so please visit often for updates.

We want to hear from you!

Please identify the specific section of the ISER you wish to comment on from the drop down menu and provide your comments in the Comments box.  Your comments will be sent to the Accreditation Standing Committee for review and incorporation into the ISER where appropriate.
