Classified Senate Accreditation Participation
2020 - 2022


For the first time, LBCC Classified Senate representatives will represent the Classified Body in the upcoming Accreditation process.

Accreditation is a self-evaluation process that happens once every seven years. The work will start in January 2020 and go into 2022. The process is essential for LBCC to be able to provide financial aid, ensure our courses will transfer to other colleges, and ensure the public and employers know LBCC programs meet standards of quality. However, it can also be an opportunity for self-reflection about current conditions, future direction, and future goals. We hope that it will also be an opportunity for members of the Classified Body to get involved, contribute to the conversation, as well as offer expertise to the various committees.

We need 10 colleagues to volunteer to represent the Classified Senate in the Accreditation process:
1.) One Accreditation Steering Committee Tri-Chair
2.) Nine Standard Committee Tri-Chairs

(There are four “Standards,” but the college has decided to create nine committees since the work of some standards is more than others.)

Must be able to commit to two trainings on the following dates:

  • Friday, January 31st for a Zoom Training with ACCJC
  • Wednesday, March 25th for an In-Person Training with ACCJC


Please submit your statement by e-mail by Friday, December 13th at 4 pm.
