Beginning January 1995, a new acting-president was appointed to administer the college. By that date, of course, the Report was written, save for a few, incomplete points. Consequently, throughout this Report, unless clearly indicated otherwise, all references to the college president, his practices, policies, and plans and to the college administration are to the previous president and his administration.


The editor wishes to thank especially Mark Pracher, Dean Carlotta Tronto, Dr. Paul Dillon, Mary Zarlenga, John Cantley, and Shari Borchetta for contributions to this Report far exceeding those either expected or hoped for. We would also like to thank Dr. Barry Logan and the Standard Eight Committee of Pierce College for their gracious assistance with the district portion of standard eight.
