Accreditation

Welcome

San Diego Mesa College is fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Our accreditation was reaffirmed by the Commission after our most recent self-study in 2010. The next site visit will be held in Fall 2016 following the College's ongoing comprehensive review. While the accreditation standards have been revised since the 2010, the 2016 self-evaluation will incorporate lessons learned from the visiting team's 2010 Evaluation Report, ACCJC's recommendations, our 2011 Follow-Up Report, and our 2013 Midterm Report.

Our institution has grown from the self-reflective quality improvement it has embraced since its first accreditation visit in 1966, and we look forward to your participation as we continue to reflect on and tell our story.

 

Telling Our Story

Stories - and our urge to tell them - surround us all the time. Even things that don't seem to lend themselves to storytelling find themselves susceptible to being narrated in an entertaining and enlightening way. Frank Rose has called stories "the signal within the noise" of our everyday existences. On this campus, we seek out those signals as we interact with our students and colleagues; this self-study (now referred to as a "self-evaluation") is the manifestation of those efforts. We look forward to hearing your contribution.
