San Mateo, CA - Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo counties) issued the following statement in response to the reaffirmation of City College of San Francisco’s accreditation for seven years by the Accreditation Commission for Community and Junior Colleges:  

“Our collective nightmare about the viability of City College is over. Tens of thousands of students in San Francisco can finally rejoice and enroll into City College classes with confidence,” Speier said. “It’s been a long and hard-fought battle by a large coalition of students, educators and elected officials who recognize how essential City College is to a healthy San Francisco. The college has a sterling record of preparing students for good and well-paying jobs that it can now continue without the fear of having its doors slammed shut. This is a victory for the entire city.”
