Some GOOD news for a change!  
Allegheny County Community College's accreditation affirmed
Wednesday, June 28, 2006

Community College of Allegheny County announced yesterday that the Middle States Commission on Higher Education has removed the school from warning status and reaffirmed the college's accreditation.

The action involved warnings issued last year concerning two of 14 accreditation standards.

"Since our warnings ... faculty and administrators have worked diligently to develop new general education goals to train faculty in assessment strategies and to pilot a variety of assessment activities," said Wendy Weiner, Ph.D., senior vice president of academic affairs and chief executive officer of South campus.

CCAC President Stewart Sutin said the college will work to further elevate its status. Removal of the citation is a relief to faculty, said John Dziak, head of the faculty union.


I've tried looking, I even tried writing the Putz-Gazette, but I could never find out exactly why they were on warning status in the first place.
