N.J.’s largest community college issued warning

    New Jersey’s largest community college has been warned its “accreditation may be in jeopardy.”

    The Middle States Commission on Higher Education says Bergen Community College has failed to show evidence that assessments of student learning were used to strengthen teaching, allocate resources and ensure graduates had necessary skills.

    College interim President Jose Adames called an emergency faculty meeting for this afternoon.

    The Paramus-based school, which has about 17,000 students, must submit another monitoring report in September.

    Essex County College and Kean University got warnings for similar problems in June.
