The Accreditation Self Study Report of Los Angeles Valley College. Presented to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges in Support of Application for Reaffirmation of Accreditation.
Los Angeles Valley Coll., Van Nuys, CA.
This accreditation self-study report was prepared by Los Angeles Valley College in support of its application for reaffirmation of accreditation. Introductory sections describe methods used in organization for the self-study, describe the college and its demographic make-up, and review responses to previous accreditation team recommendations. The remainder of the report is divided into 10 sections corresponding to accreditation standards. The standards focus on: (1) goals and objectives, including an overview and appraisal of institutional mission, goals, and objectives; (2) educational programs, focusing on goals and innovations; (3) staff development and staff diversity; (4) student services, such as articulation, counseling, financial aid, and general campus services; (5) community education and services; (6) on-campus learning resources; (7) physical resources; (8) financial resources and college funding; (9) governance and administration; and (10) district relationships. Plans of action that respond to problems cited in the self-study are identified in each section. Specific college responses to such needs as better vocational education training, a more updated faculty handbook, a more formal review process for community service courses, and more planning of faculty and staff development activities fully involving colleges in the district are detailed.
