The nine Accreditation Standard Committees are tri-chaired by an administrator, faculty, and classified team member. Each standard committee oversees a Standard Area as outlined by the ACCJC. These committees are composed of faculty, classified, and administrative members who can contribute knowledge, expertise, and area-specific insight to the creation of the narrative for their Standard Area. Students also serve as members on these committees and provide insight through the lens of how they experience the policies, processes, and implementation of the mission that is intended to support their educational success. Other knowledgeable stakeholders of the college community can be deemed as ‘resource members’ who can contribute to the narrative. Each standard committee helps to create the Institutional Self-Evaluation Report (ISER) by collecting evidence, drafting narratives, and ensuring compliance for their standards.
Once drafted by the Accreditation Standard Committees, the ISER will be distributed broadly across campus for input, review, and to gather additional feedback. The ISER will also be reviewed by major constituent groups including the Associated Student Body, Faculty and Classified Senates, and leadership teams. Once the College community has crafted the best ISER LBCC can create, it will be presented to the Board of Trustees for review and ultimately submitted to ACCJC.
