Exit Report: A Roadmap for Further Progress

The team of peer evaluators from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) presented its exit report to the College yesterday. After a review of the BCCC self-study and three-day site visit to the campus, the team found the College to reflect compliance with ten of fourteen MSCHE standards. The report provides recommendations and guidelines for achieving full compliance with all Standards.


As Dr. Anderson observed, this exit report is a very clear roadmap for improvement and sustainability, and the College is taking immediate steps to follow through. In June, the full Commission will make its decision regarding reaffirmation of accreditation of BCCC for the next ten years.
