PHCC earns Southern Association of Colleges and Schools reaccreditation

NEW PORT RICHEY— Pasco-Hernando Community College has received official notification reaffirming its accreditation by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

The association is the regional body for the accreditation of degree-seeking higher education institutions for 11 Southern states.

The Commission on Colleges' mission is the enhancement of educational quality throughout the region.

It strives to improve the effectiveness of institutions by ensuring that community colleges and universities meet standards established by the higher education community that address the needs of society and students.

"The reaccreditation process began five years ago, and required honest self-assessment and the collection of detailed information regarding virtually all of our programs, procedures and practices," said PHCC president Katherine Johnson.

"We are extremely proud of achieving this significant milestone," Johnson continued. "Our reaccreditation validates all of the hard work and many accomplishments of everyone associated with PHCC."
