Fall

Resolution Number: 
02.01
Category: 
Accreditation
Status: 
Assigned

Whereas, The Chief Executive Officers’ Workgroup I on Accreditation document A Preliminary Report to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges[1] recommended that the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges revise specific processes for visiting team member nomination and selection;

Whereas, Conversations about accreditation processes have on many occasions noted the need for more faculty participation on accreditation visiting teams;

Whereas, One frequently noted issue regarding the nomination of faculty members is that the only avenue for nomination is through recommendation by the college’s chief executive officer (CEO), so faculty service on visiting teams is often solely dependent on the individual’s relationship with his or her CEO; and

Whereas, Accreditation is most effective when it is a collaborative endeavor, and thus institutions could benefit from establishing local procedures for recruiting, screening, and nominating faculty members and others through a collegial process that includes the leadership of faculty, administration, and other constituencies;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with the Community College League of California and other appropriate constituencies to encourage colleges to establish collaborative local processes for recruiting, screening, and nominating faculty and other college employees to serve on accreditation visiting teams; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with the Community College League of California and other appropriate constituencies to identify effective practices and provide guidance for colleges to help them establish collaborative local processes for recruiting, screening, and nominating faculty and other college employees to serve on accreditation visiting teams.
