ACCREDITING COMMISSION CONFIRMS VCCCD COLLEGES' ACCREDITATION
Ventura County Community College District is pleased to announce that Ventura College, Oxnard College, and Moorpark College have been removed from probation status and returned to full compliance with accreditation standards. All three Colleges are in good standing with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (Commission), the accrediting agency that ensures its member institutions meet required institutional standards recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education.
At its January 2013 meeting, the Commission took action to remove Ventura College and Oxnard College from probation and reaffirmed accreditation. Moorpark College was also removed from probation, and its accreditation remained reaffirmed.
Board Chair Bernardo Perez commended faculty, staff, and students. "This is the news we have been waiting to hear. The Board is extremely grateful to the Colleges and District community for their diligent contributions in providing successful responses to the District recommendations." Chancellor Jamillah Moore commented on the findings, stating, "In the spirit of continuous improvement, College and District staff and the Board worked together to ensure compliance in all areas recommended by the Commission. It was a team effort that resulted in a rewarding outcome."
As part of the regular accreditation evaluation cycle, the Colleges are required to submit midterm reports to the Commission in October 2013. The midterm reports will demonstrate sustained changes and improvements, address how accreditation recommendations have been resolved, and describe progress on College-identified recommendations for improvement.
