HCC Granted Highest Recognition by the Illinois Community College Board
1/9/2009

Springfield, IL, January 09, 2009 - Today the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) granted Highland Community College the status of "recognition continued", the highest recognition status issued by the ICCB. This means HCC (Community College District 519) meets ICCB standards and is entitled to receive ICCB grants. funny birthday pictures

The decision was followed by an in-depth review process set forth by the ICCB as a part of its five-year cycle of �recognition� designed to ensure the state�s community colleges are in compliance with state statues and standards. The process includes the submission of a detailed self-evaluation, the district�s responses to a draft report and an ICCB staff visit which took place in May of last year. funny pictures

The �recognition continued� status granted HCC states that the college meets instructional, administrative, financial, facility and equipment standards established by the ICCB.

"We are pleased with the recognition, it is validation that the college is continuing to provide quality education, training and services to the residents of Northwest Illinois�, said HCC President Dr. Joe Kanosky. �I commend the college trustees, faculty and staff for their efforts in maintaining the high standards required to receive this status.� funny images

The college will undergo the next ICCB recognition evaluation in 2013.

Highland Community College offers more than 60 programs of applied and transfer degrees, community education and business training. In addition to comprehensive academic programming, Highland provides theatre, art and music opportunities for the community. Highland Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association�s Academic Quality Improvement Program. Located in Freeport and Elizabeth, Highland is conveniently positioned in the tri-state region with access to several major metropolitan areas. funny photos
