Brookdale Community College at Risk of Losing Accreditation


Brookdale Community College has until March 1 to show the Middle States Commission on Higher Education that it has “internal controls and processes to ensure ongoing consistent ethical behavior” and uses “assessment results for the improvement of educational effectiveness” or the college will lose its accreditation, according to the Asbury Park Press.

The college received the warning notice of two unmet accreditation standards from the commission in a letter in June, meaning that its 14,000 students could be in peril of losing their federal financial aid. Brookdale officials say they are “fully engaged” and will address the issues listed in the letter by the March deadline.

“Our emphasis is on moving forward and ensuring that Brookdale continues its mission as a gateway for thousands to obtain a degree, acquire training for career advancement and lifelong learning opportunities,” Brookdale communications director Stephen Hudik said.

According to APP, the college has already appointed Dr. David Stout as its permanent president. Brookdale will also hire a CPA firm in the spring to perform a risk analysis and assess internal audit functions and will introduce climate surveys among various groups at the college.
