2017 Self-Evaluation Report Final

Self-Evaluation Visit

On March 6-9, 2017, VVC will undergo a comprehensive review from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior College (ACCJC). The review will be based on the College's self-evaluation of how well it meets ACCJC's standards as well as numerous team interviews and evaluation of evidence. By the end of the review period, the College will receive a verbal, public report of the team's immediate findings. The final evaluation of the College, including ACCJC's recommendations for accreditation, will be received in a formal written document in July 2017. The letter and Evaluation Report will be published online at that time.

Self-Evaluation Writing Process

In order to evaluate itself against the ACCJC standards, the College began a formal review process. The permanent Accreditation Steering Committee (ASC) was formed and consists of all groups — faculty, classified, confidential, managers and students. Standards Writing Teams began their work with review of the ACCJC standards and collection of evidence through interviews and document review to support the College's achievements toward meeting the standards. This 2017 Self-Evaluation Report is the culmination of the collaborative work done by the writing teams.

The following files were uploaded January 6, 2017, and are the same documents that were mailed to the ACCJC Visiting Team members.
