Fostering Student Learning and Achievement
ACCJC Voluntary Self/Peer Regulation and Evaluation
To provide quality education and operate efficiently as an organization we need to effectively direct resources, mindfully offer programs and services while providing support to students, staff and faculty as needed for their success. MVC, along with its US peers, participates in self regulation/evaluations to achieve accredited status as overseen by the Commission (Purpose and Process).
Our good standing lets the public know that we have achieved, maintained and evolved the highest standards, bringing value to students who earn their education at our institution. Employers, trade/professional licensing agencies and other colleges/universities know they can accept a MVC student’s credentials as legitimate and equal to courses offered at other accredited organizations.
