ACCJC Reaffirmation of Los Angeles Valley College


Hello Monarch Family:

I am very pleased to report that, based on our Institutional Self-Evaluation Report, the Comprehensive Visit in March and my presentation before the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges on June 9th, Los Angeles Valley College has been fully reaffirmed for at least the next 18 months, and I fully expect that to be extended to March 2023 once the College has submitted its required Follow-Up Report on October 1, 2017.  As you can see from the attached ACCJC Action letter, the Follow-Up Report will mostly focus on responses to the District’s non-compliance Recommendations, although we should be proud that District Recommendation #2 does not apply to LAVC because we had completed close to 100% of our evaluations at the time of the visit.

As you know from my email after the ACCJC Commission hearing, the one question I was asked related to the rigor of our institution-set standards. So, I was not surprised to see that they do want us to revisit our institution-set standards and report on our revised goals and standards as part of the Follow-Up Report in October 2017.

Folks, we have much to be proud of as an institution.  We are fully reaffirmed with no College compliance issues and no sanctions to address for what I know will be the next seven years!  This is a testament to how hard y’all have worked for the past 4 years!  I am confident that we will dispense with these issues quickly; in fact, Vice Chancellor of Institutional Effectiveness, Dr. Ryan Cornner, is already plotting the next steps for the District to respond to the Recommendations.

Congratulations!  Y’ALL ROCK!!!!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
