On June 16, 2023, Palau Community College (PCC) received a letter from Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). In the letter, dated June 15th, ACCJC President Dr. Mac Powell informed PCC President Dr. Patrick U. Tellei that “Upon consideration of the written information received: Institutional Self-Evaluation Report, evidentiary materials, and Peer Review Team Report, the ACCJC Commission acted to Reaffirm Accreditation for seven years”.
The College would like to recognize its Board of Trustees, administrators, faculty, staff, and students for their assistance, support and contribution with the Institutional Self-Evaluation Report (ISER). The dedication and hard work of everyone involved have helped Palau Community College maintain its accreditation status. The next ISER is scheduled for fall 2029 with a campus visit in the spring of 2030. Thank you all for ensuring that Palau’s only institution of higher learning continues to support student learning, student achievement, and institutional effectiveness.
