Nettles said throughout their tour of the school SACSCCs members were impressed with the education, students, faculty and facilities of the college.

Actions being taken to respond to recommendations include: revise a class requirement in the undergraduate degree program catalog, better monitor the progress of students in general education competencies and strengthening the institutional capability and the assessment plan for the Quality Enhancement Plan.

“The committee was very complimentary of the report and said it was the best assessment plan they have seen in a long time,” said Nettles. “We have so much to be proud of and sometimes it helps to have people remind us of how unique we are.”
