Accreditation Task Force to Visit City College

The City College Board of Trustees will take questions on Thursday from the six-member Accreditation Task Force that President Lori Gaskin formed this summer. The 12 questions, preformulated by the Task Force, focus on leadership and governance. SBCC was placed on warning status by its accreditor last March for superseding its defined role. The college must compose a letter by March 15 to explain how it has addressed its derelictions of governance.
