Teams of peer reviewers conduct the evaluations. A team from the Commission will conduct a site visit at Tri-C on Feb. 19-20 as part of the review.
As part of the process, the Commission invites the public to submit comments regarding the College. Comments should address substantive matters related to the quality of the institution or its academic programs.
