San Francisco City College’s Accreditation Story: Monday, December 2nd 2:00pm-3:30pm, Sesnon House
Did you know SFCC has had its accreditation stripped as of July 2014? Loss of accreditation would translate into loss of state, local, and federal funding, effectively SHUTTING DOWN THE LARGEST COMMUNITY COLLEGE IN THE STATE. Numerous complaints and lawsuits have been filed with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), expressing concerns about unlawful delegation of public duties, conflicts of interest, unlawful retaliation, and requesting injunctive relief. The state legislature has also called for an investigation ACCJC.
A speaker panel of a student, faculty member, and trustee will make it all the way from SF to to share their story. PLEASE JOIN US and help spread the word.
