NEWARK — Essex County College has met a crucial deadline with its accrediting agency as it strives to stabilize from a rocky year of high-profile firings and financial investigations.
The college submitted its monitoring report due to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the nonprofit that issues and monitors accreditation to area colleges, on Sept. 1. The report focused on three areas Middle States flagged for deficiencies: resources, leadership and governance, and student admissions.
