Last week, the Commission for Community and Junior Colleges sent Cuesta College an order to show cause for remaining accredited noting that the college needs to show improvement in the areas of financial management and stability, assessment plans and technological infrastructure. As part of the order, the college is required to develop an exit plan for closure that includes a financial accounting.
Campus officials are also working to reassure employees that their positions are secure and that the administration is focused on maintaining accreditation.
“The biggest challenge for us right now is just convincing people not to lose confidence,” Cuesta President Gil Stork said to the Tribune.
