The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) is one of the six regional accreditation agencies in America. Its jurisdiction covers California, Hawaii, and the Pacific regions. Four-year institutions seek accreditation from WASC for Senior Colleges and Universities (WSCUC) while non-four year institutions obtain theirs from two other commissions (one for junior colleges and the other for K-12 schools and non-degree granting post-secondary institutions).
California State University, San Bernardino went through an accreditation reaffirmation process in the 2013-2014 academic year, leading to its reaccreditation for a period of seven years, till 2021.
WSCUC issued its action letter to CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales on March 6, 2015. In it, the commission commends the university for “a committed and caring community,” “outstanding contribution of faculty and staff,” “executive leadership,” “development of the Palm Desert Campus,” “strategic planning,” and “building a culture of evidence.”
While the university celebrates its success in obtaining reaccreditation from WASC, we are fully aware that there is more be done to help our students become responsible and productive members of society. We are poised to move forward along a path of continuous improvement for our students and our community.
