KCTCS Board of Regents Policies
1.2 KCTCS College Mission Approval Policy
The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) accreditation standards require that the college’s statement of purpose be approved by the governing board and that the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) Board of Regents demonstrates that it periodically reviews and approves mission statements of each of the SACSCOC accredited colleges under its jurisdiction.
Consistent with this requirement, it is the policy of the KCTCS Board of Regents that each SACSCOC accredited college have a Board-approved mission statement that is consistent with state statutes, the Council on Postsecondary Education’s strategic agenda, and the KCTCS mission.
The KCTCS President is authorized to develop procedures which assure that SACSCOC-accredited colleges’ mission statements are periodically reviewed and approved. These procedures must include endorsement by the college’s local board of directors, review by the KCTCS Chancellor, and approval by the KCTCS President and Board of Regents.
