Engage in wide-spread college dialogue about ongoing accreditation efforts and challenges in programs across the college.
Identify positive solutions and areas in which each of us can play a role.


  • Learn what’s happening across the college and what role each of us can play in contributing to success for the institution
  • Participate in discussions (learn from others and share your own experiences, ideas, and suggestions)
  • Take notes (notes handout and copy of agenda, ACCJC eligibility requirements, and ACCJC standards to be provided for everyone in the morning)
  • Report back in school and division meetings, and through online evaluation form that will be sent out after the meeting. *Notes submitted through online form will go to presenters of each concurrent session for incorporation into online summaries to be posted on website. In this way we can ensure folks can learn about sessions they couldn't attend (including part-timers and others who are not able to make it to campus that day).
  • Flex Credit Guidelines


  • Please bring with you a writing utensil, a hard surface on which to write, and a willingness to take notes and share ideas!
  • Make sure you know the room to which you've been assigned for the main event.
