ACCJC 1996-1997 Annual Report.
Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Santa Rosa, CA.
The 1996-97 Annual Report from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) provides public disclosure of the Commission's procedures and policies to help renew public confidence in the importance and effectiveness of peer review and self-regulation in accreditation. The report begins with messages from the Commission's Chair (Constance Carroll) and Executive Director (David B. Wolf), followed by an analysis of team reports (by Judith Watkin, Associate Executive Director). This section discusses planning, personnel issues, board of trustees, governance, student services, diversity issues, program review, learning resources, and district/college relationships. The next section (by A. Darlene Pacheco, Assistant Director) addresses the issue of improving communication, describing various manuals, guides, and activities that serve to enhance communication between ACCJC, members of the Commission, institutional members, and the public at large. Commission actions concerning member institutions are then listed according to the date the actions took place. Next is a table summarizing Commission actions from 1992-93, through June 1997. Policy actions of 1997 are then discussed, followed by a summary of staff reports. The final section provides the budget summary for the year ending June 30, 1997, identifying revenue and expense amounts. A list of commissioners and staff is provided. (YKH)
