2024 Institutional Self Evaluation 

Mt. SAC is conducting a self-evaluation and preparing an Institutional Self-Evaluation (ISER) report in preparation for a comprehensive accreditation review in Fall 2024 by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC).  As part of this process, Mt. SAC faculty, classified, confidential, managers, and students are participating on Weaving (writing) Teams to collect evidence and document the College’s achievements towards meeting ACCJC Standards.   The Mt. SAC ISER will be finalized in Spring 2023 and will be published online at that time. Our College Accreditation theme, "Weaving Our Story," is framing the work as we engage in preparations for the accreditation review.
