Warning Lifted Accreditation Reaffirmed

Mesekiu News, July 08, 2011 Issue


In a June 30th letter addressed to PCC president, Dr. Tellei, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) has lifted the Warning issuance and reaffirmed the accreditation status of Palau Community College.

In exactly one year ago, the accrediting commission acted to place PCC on a Warning status and required the college to address four recommendations – Improving Institutional Effectiveness, Library and Learning Support Services, Human Resources, and Leadership and Governance – for quality assurance purposes. The Warning impelled Dr. Tellei, the Board of Trustees, Executive Committee and the Follow Up Self Study Steering Committee to take proactive steps to improve the deficiencies at all institutional levels. The college-wide effort engaged in self-reflective and shared discussions to promote a culture of positive changes dedicated to improving organizational structures, integrated planning and resource allocation in alignment with the College’s 15 Year Institutional Master Plan 2009-2024.

Given the accreditation status in a short period of time, Dr. Tellei encourages the college community to sustain the improvement effort and remain focused on the work ahead of us. A tremendous amount of work has been initiated and still need to be developed and implemented to ensure quality assurance to the public. As we strive to learn and identify the priorities, strengths and weaknesses, and emerging challenges, he is confident that we will continue to serve our students, constituents, and communities with effective educational and academic support services, fiscal, technological and human resources.

Dr. Tellei takes this opportunity to thank the people and residents of Palau, students, alumni donors, supporters, and friends for your continued trust and support over the years.
