Hopkinsville Community College administrators say the college is being reaccredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). 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 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.
HCC Interim President Patrick Lake says with the reaffirmation of accreditation, the College can move forward and chart its course. He adds the college will continue to evaluate internally to make sure measureable student learning outcomes are in place.
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; and 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
