SPSCC is honored to recognize six newly tenured faculty who have worked 24 years at the college combined. Tenure is a three-year process in which faculty members must satisfactorily perform required assignments that are instructional, as well as non-instructional, within their assigned area of discipline. Assignments include instruction, designing a curriculum, service work, and more. Their performance is under review by a Probationary Review Committee that reports to the Board of Trustees. At the end of three successful years, the Board grants the award of tenure.
The Nursing Program at South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) has officially been granted initial candidacy status from the National League for Nursing Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation (NLN CNEA) starting July 2017. The pre-accreditation status is the first step for the Nursing Program to achieve national accreditation within a three-year timeline. The program applied for pre-accreditation status in early 2017 and was informed of its approval June 2017.
