Atlantic Cape Community College President Peter L. Mora accepted an invitation from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education to chair the decennial accreditation evaluation visit to Genesee Community College in New York.
The on-site evaluation visit, which is a key component of the 10-year accreditation process for colleges, is scheduled for April 2017. This is the second time Dr. Mora has been invited by the commission to chair an evaluation team visit. He headed the team for the 10-year evaluation to Hagerstown Community College in Maryland in April 2015.
Dr. Mora is the only president in the 50-year history of Atlantic Cape Community College to have chaired a decennial accreditation team for the MSCHE.
