RALEIGH, N.C. (October 30, 2014) – Dr. Stephen Scott, President of Wake Technical Community College, is  proud to announce that the college has received the highest of marks from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools-Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC), its accrediting body. The SACS-COC Reaccreditation Committee has just concluded a three-day site visit to Wake Tech as part of the college’s 10-year reaffirmation. Their report of“no recommendations” means that Wake Tech is compliant in all areas, and that no problems were identified – an unusual occurrence for schools undergoing reaccreditation.
“This is extremely rare,” said SACS Vice President Dr. Robin Hoffman.
The SACS Reaccreditation Committee’s findings were announced this morning. The committee made “no recommendations” for both major components of the review – the Compliance Certification Report and the Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP.
Wake Tech submitted the Compliance Certification Report to SACS-COC six months ago. It demonstrates Wake Tech’s compliance in three key areas: Core Requirements, Comprehensive Standards, and Federal Regulations.
The QEP is required as a way to engage the college community in addressing an opportunity for improvement. Wake Tech’s QEP, called EPIC (E-Learning Preparedness Initiative Across the College), is designed to improve student success in online learning. SACS Reaccreditation Committee members called the plan “fantastic” and said it clearly had “broad support” among staff, faculty and students.
“I want to thank members of the SACS reaccreditation team,” said Dr. Scott, “for taking the time to conduct such a thorough review of our institution. They have confirmed what I already know: that we have the best and most passionate faculty and staff at our college, all of whom are committed to the success of our students.”
The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is the recognized regional accrediting body in 11 states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia). The committee’s report will be presented to the Executive Council of the Commission in June for formal reaccreditation.
