The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is pleased to partner with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges in preparation for Accreditation Institute. This winter, the Accreditation Institute 2012, "From Product to Process: Accreditation for the Common Good“ will be held at the Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort on February 10-11, 2012. The main purpose of the Accreditation Institute is to assist and support faculty and administrative leaders as they navigate all the waters of writing their institution’s self evaluation.  Furthermore, the Institute will examine ways of addressing assessment and “closing the loop” in order to meet the proficiency level in learning outcomes as indicated on the ACCJC rubric. As always, there will be opportunities throughout the Institute to ask questions, raise issues and concerns, create action plans for your campus, share strategies with colleagues from across the state, and develop a network of support. Registration is open to faculty, accreditation liaison officers, and chief officers. This year’s institute is brought to you in conjunction with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.

The cancellation deadline is January 16, 2012. After January 16th, registration fees will increase to $530, $455, and $380 respectively. Please review our cancellation policy before registering. Limit of five registrants per college. All disciplines encouraged.

The Accreditation Institute is paper-lite. The Academic Senate is trying to reduce the amount of paper we use at our events. This is an effort both to be responsible toward the environment and to increase the quality and timeliness of the resources provided. Electronic materials will replace paper and will be accessible online before, during, and after the program. It is our hope that this will encourage you to join us in our goal to be as paper-lite as possible. 

A program will be provided to each attendee upon arrival, however, conference and breakout materials will be available for download here. Free internet is available to those who have elected to stay in the hotel. We encourage you to download the materials prior to arrival.
