The Faculty Senate voted unanimously for the resolution against Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) on Oct. 14.

Palomar’s Faculty Senate President Greg Larson plans to attend the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) meeting set for Oct. 19.

“I will be taking along the resolution to the area meeting on Saturday,” Larson said.  He added that the resolution is to be used as information only.

The resolution clearly “expresses deep concern over the combative nature of the relationships between ACCJC and many of California’s community colleges.”

“It does not get anymore serious than this, it is time for the faculty to hear,” said Teresa Laughlin a major ACCJC opponent and a member of the Faculty Senate.  “The Faculty Senate needs to standup to the ACCJC.”
