Accreditation

Congratulations to the faculty, staff and students of Laney College and Merritt College for earning the reaffirmation of accreditation from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC). College of Alameda and Berkeley City College earned that status last year. Much work was done to document that we meet ACCJC Standards. Our Steering Committees and Committee Chairs at all of our Colleges have our deepest gratitude for restoring the honor of being “sanction free.”

 

Board Retreat

One of the recommendations of the ACCJC is for the Chancellor and Trustees to work together to support student success. If you recall, the District had Eight Recommendations from the 2015 ACCJC Self Study. Recommendation Seven required that the Governing Board and the Chancellor work together “to assure the quality, integrity, and effectiveness of the student learning programs and services and the financial stability of the institution.” Since that time, we have conscientiously strived to engage in a positive working relationship and to live up to our charge. We continue to take ACCJC’s Recommendations seriously as we continue to review our work and to make improvements. 

 

Chancellor Laguerre also informed the Board that he has refocused his goals to help us attain greater success for our students. Board members accepted his proposal. Chancellor Laguerre indicated that concerted efforts will be made to help improve the District Administration Center’s service to the Colleges and the public that interacts with us as vendors, suppliers, grantors and benefactors. Attention to these efforts– coupled with the fact that we live in an area that is becoming less and less affordable to live with ease– requires us to think strategically about how best to help those at the lowest levels of compensation do better financially. We are committed to demonstrably support greater student success at Peralta and to ensure that our efforts are visible.
