Santa Barbara City College is no longer under “Warning,” President Lori Gaskin communicated in a letter sent to faculty and staff on July 6. She had been notified three days earlier that the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) made its decision during its biannual June meeting. In that same meeting, the commission chose to pull the accreditation — effective June 2014 — of the state’s largest community college, San Francisco City College, putting the fate of 85,000 students into question. This year, SBCC was named the best community college in the nation by the Aspen Institute.

The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges needs to lose its accreditation.

Thank you Lori Gaskin for fixing the mess created by the board of trustees.

Yeah, seems odd doesn't it. Aspen finds them the best in the nation and the ACCJC has them on probation. Someone's value-o-meter is broken.

The warning status had to do with admissions, NOT academic quality or even cigarette smoking on campus.

Hey Indy, why are the comments in a small font than the main body of the article?
