FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (October 13, 2023) -- Broward College today completed a four-day on-site visit (October 9 to 12) with its regional accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The preliminary findings by the on-site committee gave the College an A+. No recommendations were reported by the on-site committee, which stated that Broward College has excelled in meeting all the assessed standards and that the College's Quality Enhancement Plan also meets the compliance assessment criteria. A written report confirming the outstanding preliminary results will be provided to the college in a few weeks.

This success story is a testament to the dedicated efforts of the entire Broward College community. The College acknowledges that the initial documentation provided to the off-site committee was insufficient. With the appointment of Dr. Barbara J. Bryan as president and the reassignment of the reaffirmation effort to Dr. Jeffery P. Nasse, they worked around the clock with outstanding College teams comprised of staff, and faculty, and resolved all documentation deficiencies.

The Committees on Compliance and Reports (C&R), standing committees of the SACSCOC Board of Trustees, review reports prepared by evaluation committees. Recommendation regarding an institution's reaffirmation of accreditation is then forwarded to the Executive Council for review. The SACSCOC Board of Trustees is responsible for ratifying those recommendations. The final step is to issue the College its reaffirmation certification by formal letter. Broward College will receive its formal letter in June of 2024.

"I want to express my gratitude to the Broward College Board of Trustees, students, and our dedicated and exceptional faculty and staff who have shown outstanding leadership throughout this process," said Dr. Barbara Bryan. "Your unwavering commitment to this institution and our community is both remarkable and inspiring, and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve alongside each of you as we continue to fulfill our mission."
