ACCJC: ACCJC Collaborates with CHEA, Lumina Foundation, and 24 Other Leaders on Framework for Action
The following press release was distributed by ACCJC on March 31, 2021.
The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges is excited to highlight the publication of A Framework for Action, a tool for public higher education systems and accrediting organizations working together, both on a routine basis and when significant changes are contemplated by either party.
Funded by Lumina Foundation, the Framework is the product of consultation with executives of public systems and institutional and programmatic accrediting organizations that took place during fall 2020. Twenty-four leaders participated in a series of virtual consultations and meetings that produced the document. The project was led by CHEA, through its President Emeritus Judith Eaton, working with Barbara Brittingham, President Emeritus of the New England Commission of Higher Education, and Sally Johnstone, President of the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems.
ACCJC President Stephanie Droker wishes to express the honor it was to join these esteemed colleagues from around the United States to help develop this tool for use by public higher education systems and accrediting organizations and looks forward to continued collaboration with colleges and systems throughout the ACCJC region.
