The public is invited to comment on the qualifications of Wenatchee Valley College (WVC) as an accredited institution. WVC will be visited by a team of evaluators October 13-15, 2010, as part of its institutional accreditation process. WVC has been continuously accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) since 1948 and was most recently reaffirmed after a visit in October 2009 that addressed revised standards one and two. WVC is one of four colleges participating in a pilot project to implement revised standards and processes for institutional accreditation from NWCCU. The October visit will evaluate WVC’s response to revised standards three through five and complete the comprehensive evaluation process.
Comments may be sent directly to the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, 8060 165th Ave NE, Suite 100, Redmond, WA 98052, phone 425/558-4224. Comments must be received by September 12, 2010, and will be forwarded to WVC, the members of the evaluation committee, and members of the Commission on Colleges. More information on the revised standards and process and the full text of the Commission’s policy on public notification and third-party comments can be viewed at the NWCCU Web site, www.nwccu.org, or by calling the NWCCU office.
