Our Commitment to Quality Education
Accreditation plays a crucial role in ensuring the quality and integrity of higher education. The purpose of accreditation for a community college is multi-fold. It serves as a measure of institutional accountability and transparency. Additionally, it provides a framework to evaluate our mission, goals, and educational outcomes, ensuring that we meet the highest standards of equity and instructional quality for our campus community.
