Board Chair Justin Reichert congratulated college faculty and staff on the reaffirmation of accreditation. “This good news is the culmination of several years of hard work by our AQIP (Academic Quality Improvement Program) team and many faculty and staff involved in strategy forums, action projects and systems appraisals. It demonstrates the college’s commitment to continuous quality improvement and compliance with criteria for accreditation.”
