Institutional Accreditation

Purpose of Accreditation

The WSCUC accreditation process assures stakeholders, including the educational community and the general public, that institutions have been rigorously evaluated and meet high standards of quality and effectiveness. The process also promotes the meaning, quality, and integrity of educational programs and encourages a commitment to continuous improvement.

Sonoma State is truly a gem. We are the 'small campus with big ideas' and the 'light of the mind, light of the world'.   --- SSU President Dr. Judy K. Sakaki
