hcc 02 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (7/17/13) – Hopkinsville Community College administrators have been notified by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) that the Commission on Colleges (COC) has reaffirmed the College’s accreditation.
 
A committee from SACS visited HCC’s campus over three days last October to examine data and conduct interviews in order to evaluate the soundness of HCC’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) and ascertain whether the institution is in compliance with the Principles of Accreditation.
 
HCC was required to submit a follow-up monitoring report in March. SACS has accepted that report with no need for additional information. “With the reaffirmation of accreditation, the College can move forward and chart its course,” stated HCC Interim President Patrick Lake. “We will continue to evaluate ourselves even after this process. Measureable student learning outcomes are in place. We have to review those outcomes regularly and ensure that our students are learning to continue growth.”
 
The SACS accreditation process occurs every ten years and signifies that the institution:
•  has a mission appropriate to higher education
•  has resources, programs, and services sufficient to accomplish and sustain that mission
•  maintains clearly specified educational objectives that are consistent with its mission and appropriate to the degrees it offers, and that indicate whether it is successful in achieving its stated objectives
 
“HCC’s next step is to focus on outcomes from the QEP, Literatzi, which is centered around reading comprehension to support student learning and academic success. HCC’s QEP will be evaluated over the next three years,” explained Lake.
