Cuesta College Accreditation Update

August 2014

Superintendent/President Gil Stork


Cuesta College is an accredited institution of higher education that has helped tens of thousands of individuals from all walks of life achieve their educational goals. 

I fully recognize the depth and quality of people who have dedicated themselves to Cuesta’s continuous quality improvement processes and student success. I cannot say enough about the commitment of our faculty, staff, administration, students, Board of Trustees, and many volunteers to work together to ensure Cuesta's place at the center of excellence. 

As we have for the past fifty years, Cuesta College will continue to serve the educational needs of all residents of San Luis Obispo County and others with the level of excellence that you deserve and have come to expect. I can truly say that I am honored to have been given the opportunity to be president of a college community that cares so deeply about its mission to serve the needs of our students. 

In preparation for our six-year accreditation review, the college completed its Institutional Self Evaluation Report and submitted it to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges for review in June 2014. A site visit is scheduled by the Commission to validate the report and verify evidence. The visit will take place from September 29, 2014 through October 2, 2014. The 13-member team is made up of administrators, faculty, staff, and trustees from other community colleges throughout California and Pacific areas. We look forward to the team’s visit and the opportunity to confirm that Cuesta College continues to be an institution of excellence and student success.
