Northwest Accreditation: Self Study
The university’s accreditation is periodically review by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) which is an independent, non-profit membership organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as the regional authority on educational quality and institutional effectiveness of higher education institutions in the seven-state Northwest region of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. It fulfills its mission by establishing accreditation criteria and evaluation procedures by which institutions are reviewed. The last complete institutional review was in 2004. In response, the department performed a self-study in 2002, the results of which are available. The next review will be 2014.
