ACCJC Site Visit: Join the Alumni and Community Forums!

By Mount Tamalpais College | October 16, 2019

As many of you know, the Prison University Project is applying to become an accredited independent college with the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC). As part of this process, we will host a peer review team, comprising staff and instructors from other colleges, at our offices and inside San Quentin during the week of October 21. During the visit, we have also scheduled some events for the broader college community in order to give the ACCJC team an opportunity to hear from our many stakeholders.
