WNC preparing for accreditation visit in May
Western Nevada College is preparing for its comprehensive 10-year evaluation in May by members of the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, with the goal of reaffirming its accreditation. A team of evaluators will visit the college’s campuses May 3-5 to assess how well the college has fulfilled its mission in areas that include academics, student services, facilities and progress toward goals.
Evaluators, chosen from peer colleges around the country, will review a self-evaluation prepared by WNC faculty and staff, and meet with students, faculty, staff and community stakeholders.
WNC’s accreditation was reaffirmed in 2005 after an interim evaluation.
The public is welcome to comment about the college’s qualification for accreditation. Comments must be submitted in writing with an original signature and directed to the president of the Northwest Commission. They must be received by March 31. Mail to: Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, 8060 165th Ave. NE, Suite 100, Redmond, WA 98052, Attn: Dr. Sandra E. Elman, President.
The commission office may be reached by phone at 425-588-4224 or by fax at 425-376-0596.
