SACS Reaffirms UTB-TSC Accreditation

The Commission on Colleges for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools has reaffirmed the accreditation of The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College.

The announcement was made at the organization's annual meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 9, in San Antonio.

"We are very pleased that the reaffirmation process resulted in the recognition that UTB/TSC is doing exemplary work, "said Juliet V. GarcĂ­a, president of UTB/TSC. "As always, it took the combined effort of the entire campus community focusing on continued improvement."

The Commission on Colleges (COC) of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) is the recognized regional accrediting body for institutions of higher education that award associate, baccalaureate, master's or doctoral degrees in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and in Latin America.

As part of the SACS reaffirmation of accreditation process, a team of faculty and administrators from other colleges and universities visited the campus in April to interact with students, faculty, staff and administrators. The team addressed institutional effectiveness and student learning.
