Accreditation

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community College as a final avenue of action, develop alternative structures and/or approaches to replace the current accreditation commission.

Status Report: 

A work group including representatives of the AAUP and CCC/CFT worked to develop options related to seeking alternative bodies /structures for accreditation, and ICAS also considered seeking an alternative and met with WASC's director to discuss the situation. While it is unlikely that the federal government would agree to a new commission or that WASC would supplant the ACCJC, it may be useful to keep this resolution on the table for leverage accreditation.
