WSCUC Reaffirmation of Institutional Accreditation Process
The WSCUC Institutional Review Team is comprised of five reviewers and a WSCUC liaison. The team reviewed the institutional report in September and October 2021. In November 2021, SJSU leadership met with the review team members for a conference call to discuss lines of inquiry. In December 2021 and January 2022, the institution provided the team with these requested additional materials. In February and March 2022, the review team engaged in off-site and online program reviews. The review team was on-site at the SJSU Main Campus on April 6-8, 2022 (review the timeline and visit schedule). The review team's final report [pdf] (May 26, 2022) and SJSU's Response to the team report [pdf] (June 8, 2022) informed the WSCUC Commission panel meeting on June 23, 2022. On July 11, 2022, SJSU received the WSCUC Commission Action Letter [pdf].
The Institutional Report Self Study 2021-2022 [pdf] is comprised of eight components, or chapters. Within the eight components, SJSU seeks to demonstrate that it meets four WSCUC Standards. To describe the performance expectations that comprise those Standards, WSCUC provides 39 Criteria for Review (CFR). The Accrediation Review Committee assisted with gathering the data from the University community to demonstrate that SJSU meets those CFRs.
