What do you think of the ACCJC? The Dept. of Education needs to know by Sept 25, 2015

In December the ACCJC will come before NACIQI (National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity). NACIQI has the power to recommend to the DOE whether to reauthorize the ACCJC or not. The deadline to submit third party comments about the ACCJC to the Department of Education is Sept. 25, 2015. Follow the Third Party Comment guidelines to let the DOE know how the ACCJC treats community colleges. This is our opportunity to show the Department of Education that this rogue agency is not widely accepted!
