Santa Barbara City College has received word that a warning about its accreditation due to governance related issues has been removed.
The college received the warning in 2012 from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.
The concern was over the college’s Board of Trustees, with the Commission finding trustees violated their rules, and didn’t properly delegate authority to staff.
The Commission called for trustees to go through training sessions to better understand their role, and take other steps to insure they don’t overstep their bounds.
The warning status was removed last week, but the college will have to file a followup report next year to insure the changes are being implemented.
