Dear City Attorney Herrera,
We applaud your quest for injunctive relief from the decision of the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) to terminate City College of San Francisco’s accreditation on the basis that the ACCJC unlawfully allowed its advocacy and political bias to prejudice its evaluation. Thank you for supporting City College and all those who are trying to protect the public interest in low-cost, high-quality education for all kinds of learners.
Our organization, the Council of University of California Faculty Associations (CUCFA), made a public statement decrying ACCJC’s actions against City College of San Francisco at the time of the termination. We reiterate our concern, and hope your suit will help City College to continue its broad educational mission.
Thank you again for supporting high-quality public education for all Californians.
Patricia Morton, President, Council of UC Faculty Associations
Professor and Chair, College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, UC Riverside
