  Midterm Report:  Information for the Reader

 March 11, 2014


Dear College Community:


The college was reminded in December, 2013, that colleges are required to submit a Midterm report which

is due in the third year of the six year evaluation cycle.  The Midterm report reflects on our progress since the Self-Study team visit in April 2011.


The Midterm Report has been completed.  It has been reviewed by the Board of Trustees, Academic Senate,

and other governance groups.  It will be submitted to the accrediting commission by March 15, 2014.


You are encouraged to read the report, which can be found below or by going to the Accreditation site in

MC4Me at this link  If you have any comments or

questions, please let me know.  My telephone number is 209-384-6082.  Your interest in this important

report is appreciated.
