The Accreditation Steering Committee is a consortium that provides oversight for the college's institutional effectiveness efforts including data analysis and strategic and operational planning. The consortium also guides preparation for accreditation reports and visits from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).

The consortium reports to the LCC President and is supported administratively by Effectiveness & College Relations and the Office of the President.

Membership in the consortium includes Monitoring Report Review Team chairs and members of the Executive Leadership Team, with significant input from the Instructional Assessment Committee.

Meetings are held during regularly scheduled meetings of the Executive Leadership Team and as needed.

Accreditation is a standing agenda item of the weekly Executive Leadership Team meeting and relevant discussions and decisions are documented in the minutes for that group. Discussions and decisions regarding assessment of student learning outcomes are documented in the minutes of the Instructional Assessment Committee and in reports from the annual Summer Assessment Institutes.
