The Council of UC Faculty Associations (CUCFA) opposes the recent decision of the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) to revoke accreditation for City College of San Francisco (CCSF). CUCFA joins the California Conference of the American Association of University Professors, the American Federation of Teachers and the California Federation of Teachers in asking ACCJC to:
(a) reverse its decision to revoke CCSF accreditation, and
(b) seek a new assessment which recognizes CCSF’s high academic standing as well as its financial and structural problems, from reviewers less top-heavy with administrators.
CUCFA applauds CCSF faculty and students for maintaining their commitment to quality education under extremely difficult conditions. We urge the city of San Francisco and the state to develop a process for enabling CCSF to fix its management and financial problems that will not interrupt its delivery of vitally important, high-quality, affordable academic and vocational instruction to the citizens of San Francisco.
