Midterm Report: Information for the Reader
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 https://mc4me.mccd.edu/accreditation/default.aspx. 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.
Susan E. Walsh, Ed.D.
Accreditation Liaison Officer
Director, Learning Resources Center
On July 3, 2013 the College was informed the Commission took action to remove our warning status and reaffirm accreditation. See the links below for more information.
