2020 Accreditation Institute

San Diego Marriott La Jolla

Join us for a dynamic Accreditation Institute in La Jolla, CA on February 21 and 22, 2020.  As all of our colleges navigate the implementation of Guided Pathways, this institute will focus on how the work of Guided Pathways, with a foundation in equity, aligns to the accreditation standards. Guided Pathways and Accreditation both focus on improving systems and systemic assessment. There are significant changes being made at our colleges and at ACCJC that reflect our shared intent to improve our systems.  We encourage ALOs, Accreditation and Guided Pathways leads and interested faculty, staff, administration and students to attend.  Learn about how the outcomes and dialog produced through transformative Guided Pathways work can provide evidence of how colleges are meeting and/or exceeding the standards through evaluating and improving our institutions with a focus on student success.

The 2020 Accreditation Institute will be taking place at the San Diego Marriott La Jolla - La Jolla, California.

Where: Marriott La Jolla Hotel, 4240 La Jolla Village Drive, La Jolla, CA 92037

Higher education is undergoing many changes such as student placement and assessment processes, increased student services, and even consideration of a guided pathways framework. Likewise, accreditation requirements and practices are undergoing significant change. Accreditation is no longer an event that occurs once every six years to prove compliance; it is a process that requires annual consideration and broad participation to ensure that the education and services provided to our students are of high quality and value to the community and public at large. Whether your college is gathering evidence, in the process of writing an Institutional Self Evaluation Report, or preparing for a comprehensive site visit, the Academic Senate for California Community College’s Accreditation Institute will provide guidance and support. Accreditation is an opportunity to share everything that our colleges do well and to identify areas where improvement can be made. This year’s institute, while embracing change, is focused on understanding accreditation so that participants are empowered and energized to take ownership of accreditation. New this year, is a pre-session sponsored by the ACCJC. There will be two trainings: one, a new evaluator training for faculty and the other, new Accreditation Liaison Officer Training.

2016 CTE Leadership Academy

DoubleTree Hilton - Anaheim

The Academic Senate will hold a CTE Leadership Institute on May 6-7, 2016, at the DoubleTree Hilton in Anaheim. This year will bring an intense focus on career and technical education at the federal, state, and local level. In our CCC system, the Board of Governors’ Task Force on Workforce, Job Creation, and a Strong Economy recently released its recommendations.  By the time this event takes place in May, implementation conversations will be well underway and input from faculty statewide will be needed.

This event will provide CTE faculty with the opportunity to engage in key policy conversations through their interaction with representatives of the task force, by learning about the implications of policy decisions on local programs and courses, and in participating in breakout sessions to better understand the college processes including topics on leadership, curriculum design, course repetition, and effective program advocacy.
