scrollOver the last two years as SCC has prepared and participated in the reaffirmation of accreditation, it was important to not only inform the campus of the process and proceedings but to also provide opportunities for the entire campus to be engaged. Recognizing the importance of this endeavor, we presented several opportunities for staff and faculty to learn more about SCC, help tell the story of SCC, and participate in campus-wide activities. Some pertained to reaccreditation in general, and others were geared toward a specific criterion, but this site werved as the primary place to learn about and participate in these activities.

Artie Playing Card


YOU did it!  Together we embarked on a journey to reaffirm accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission. Throughout the journey we uncovered interesting ARTIE-facts about SCC, such as innovative approaches to student learning and unique ways that our mission is the thread that ties all that we do together. As a way to tell the story of SCC, we created “ARTIE” fact playing cards highlighting fascinating facts about the college. Here is your last activity to earn all 52 cards and complete a full deck.

Earn any cards you are missing by finishing this ARTIE-fact activity!
