SUMMARY OF EVALUATION REPORT INSTITUTION:

Mt. San Jacinto Community College District

DATE OF VISIT:

October 17, 2011 through October 20, 2011

TEAM CHAIR:

Phoebe K. Helm, Ed.D. Superintendent/President Hartnell College

An eleven-member accreditation team visited Mt. San Jacinto College District from October 17 through 20, 2011, for the purpose of determining whether the institution continues to meet accreditation standards. Prior to and during the visit, the team assessed how well the college is achieving its stated purposes, analyzed how well the college is meeting the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior College’s (ACCJC) four standards, provided recommendations for quality assurance and institutional improvement, and developed a recommendation for submission to the ACCJC regarding the accredited status of the college. In preparation for the visit, the team chair attended a Team Chair Workshop conducted by Dr. Barbara Beno, ACCJC President, on Tuesday, August 30, 2011.

Initial requests from team members as expressed in Assignment 1, were shared with the President and the Accreditation Liaison Officer (ALO). Findings from the visit served as updates to information provided in the previously completed self study. These updates were sent to the team members for their consideration in completing Assignment 2. In Assignment 2 team members evaluated Mt.
