NWC Accreditation Comments Sought
Written by Andrew-Rossi on April 27, 2017
Northwest College reminds area residents that they have the opportunity to have a say in the future of the school.
People are encouraged to provide comments in preparation for a September evaluation by its regional accrediting agency, the Higher Learning Commission. NWC will host an evaluation visit Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 11-12, by a team representing the HLC, which will review the institution’s ongoing ability to meet criteria for accreditation.
NWC President Stefani Hicswa said the college has been accredited by the HLC since 1964, and adds that they expect that to continue after this visit. The college’s Assurance Argument, a document and evidence files that demonstrate NWC meets criteria for reaccreditation, is nearing completion and will be available to the public late this summer.
