The Institute will provide guidance and support to colleges that are gathering evidence, writing their Institutional Self Evaluation Report (ISER), or preparing for a comprehensive site visit. This year's theme, "Rising up to Meet the New Standards: Continuing the Pursuit of Excellence and Equity," will allow participants to become familiar with the new ACCJC standards while continuing their important work of equity. The Institute will feature a variety of speakers and panelists, including representatives from the ACCJC, as well as experts in accreditation and equity. There will also be opportunities for networking and collaboration.
The ASCCC has made the decision to shift the Accreditation Institute to a fully virtual program taking place on Friday, September 29, 2023. We look forward to seeing you there!

Defining and Measuring Student Success to Promote Equity and Address Individual Success
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Date: Thursday, May 11th, 2023
What data tools are available to measure student success? Faculty work to develop student learning while preparing them for their individual goals be it transfer, career advancement, academic preparation, or personal enrichment. Student equity is central to and deeply intertwined with our focus on student success, and faculty are interested in ensuring our curriculum and student supports are meeting those equity-focused goals. Funding and statewide initiatives drive the metrics (e.g. throughput. transfer rates, etc...) that our system and many of our colleges prioritize, but often these metrics are considered in aggregate where the focus on individual students can be lost. Join the ASCCC Data and Research Committee for a discussion of how faculty define student success and share how to lay the foundations for designing good qualitative studies to contextualize quantitative data.
