SBCC Responds to Improper Governance Charge


The SBCC trustees unanimously approved a special report responding to concerns of improper governance — especially by the board — raised by the school’s accreditor last March. The report includes a survey distributed both during the fall and spring semesters in which members of the campus community expressed a wide range of opinions on the school’s leadership, but about two thirds of the fall respondents offered positive feedback. The accrediting agency will visit campus this spring before deciding whether to remove SBCC’s “warning” status.
