(Dublin, CA) – Officials at the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District have received word from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), that accreditation for Chabot College in Hayward and Las Positas College in Livermore, has been reaffirmed without any sanctions.

“We are proud that our peers on the accreditation evaluation committees recognize the excellence in teaching and learning that takes place at our colleges everyday,” said Dr. Jannett Jackson, district chancellor. “Faculty, staff and students at both colleges work hard to foster environments of support, growth, and achievement.”

Both colleges filed follow-up reports in response to recommendations that were delivered by the accreditation team in 2015 and now fully meet all Eligibility Requirements, Accreditation Standards and Commission policies. Recommendations for Las Positas College included full-time and part-time faculty assessing and communicating student learning outcomes, and evaluating the comparability of face-to-face counseling and tutoring services with online counseling and tutoring services.

“I am very pleased that ACCJC has fully reaffirmed the accreditation of Las Positas College,” said Dr. Barry Russell, Las Positas College president. “It is a great honor to have our hard work recognized and rewarded by our peers.”

Chabot College recommendations included expediting the development, assessment, dialogue and improvement plans related to course and program learning outcomes.
“We are pleased to have received the accrediting commission’s reaffirmation of the continuing excellence of our educational programs and services,” said Dr. Susan Sperling, Chabot College president.

The colleges will submit midterm reports to the ACCJC in fall 2018 as part of the ongoing accreditation process.
