Accreditation Advisory Group (AAG)

To remain accredited, every six years the college needs to complete a comprehensive self-evaluation and submit a written report of that evaluation to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.  In preparation for the completion of our 2014 Self-Evaluation, DVC formed an Accreditation Advisory Group (AAG) in fall 2012. The AAG is comprised of the president of the academic senate, the president of the classified senate, the accreditation liaison officer, the vice president of student services, the vice president of instruction, the accreditation liaison officer, and representatives from faculty and classified staff.
