Large Campus Involvement in Accreditation Training

Thanks to everyone who participated in and helped prepare for the training this week with our accreditor, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).

The day was kicked off with a training session with the newly-formed  Accreditation & Institutional Effectiveness Committee. There also were sessions with Executive Team and Student Learning, Equity, & Success Leadership Team; the Learning Outcomes Assessment Committee, Faculty Program Chairs, and Deans; a Q & A session open to campus; and finally the Study Session with the Board of Trustees (BOT).

Ed Harri, Senior Vice President with the NWCCU, told the BOT that he was heartened to see more than 50 faculty, staff, and administrators from around the College come to the training sessions. It was emphasized in the sessions that accreditation work needs to be done across the College and is a shared effort.

Recordings of individual sessions will be sent out to those groups relevant to each recording.

The College will be receiving a formal letter from the NWCCU next week in response to the NWCCU’s last site visit in October 2022 and more information will be shared at that point.
