Self-Evaluation 2020

DVC’s Institutional Self-Evaluation Report is due to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges in the fall of 2020. Work has begun on writing the report and on collecting the evidence that will be provided to substantiate the report.

Purpose of the Self-Evaluation Process

An ACCJC member institution accepts the obligation to undergo an educational quality and institutional effectiveness review every six years to maintain its accredited status. The first step in this process is a self evaluation. The self-evaluation process serves several purposes. First it is an opportunity for the institution to conduct a thorough self evaluation against the Eligibility Requirements, Accreditation Standards, including federal requirements, and Commission policies, and the institution's own objectives. The process should enable the institution to consider the quality of its programs and services, the institution's effectiveness in supporting student success, and the degree to which the institution is meeting its own expectations (institution-set standards).
