WLAC Accreditation

In August 2022, WLAC submitted the Institutional Self-Evaluation Report  (ISER) which was the culmination of two years of dedicated work by faculty, staff, and administrators along with the Accreditation Steering Committee and the District Accreditation Committee. The college-wide efforts were led by the Accreditation Liaison Officer (ALO), Dean of Institutional Effectiveness, the WLAC President, and the Faculty Accreditation Chair. After evaluating the ISER, the reviewing team held a virtual town hall and provided feedback with five core inquiries in Fall 2022. WLAC responded to the core inquiries and the Focused Site Visit from February 27 - March 1, 2023.
