Community colleges in California are evaluated by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. As explained by the ACCJC, accreditation is “a voluntary system of self-regulation developed to evaluate overall educational quality and institutional effectiveness. The ACCJC accreditation process provides assurance to the public that the accredited member colleges meet the Standards; the education earned at the institutions is of value to the student who earned it; and employers, trade or profession-related licensing agencies, and other colleges and universities can accept a student’s credential as legitimate.”
“I want to thank our Accreditation Steering Committee for the outstanding work they have done to prepare our Institutional Self-evaluation Report,” said President Greg Schulz. “They brought together more than 100 members of the college community to contribute to this robust and thorough analysis of the college.”
Schulz encourages the college community to become familiar with the report, especially aspects of the report that pertain to one’s areas of expertise at Fullerton College.
“We want to put our best foot forward, and we can do that most effectively if we each prepare by reviewing the report and learning the college’s new mission statement,” Schulz said.
