Western Nevada College’s accreditation is evaluated every seven years by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. The college is required to demonstrate to the accrediting authority that it is qualified to educate people in Northern Nevada.
In preparation for the college’s accreditation visit in April 2018, an accreditation committee has been performing a self-study to ensure that standards of performance, integrity and quality are being met. WNC faculty and staff participate in the process, and community members also have the opportunity to contribute to the accreditation self-study.
The public is invited to attend an accreditation forum from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2 in Marlette Hall in the Cedar Building on the Carson City campus.
The meeting will take participants through a review of the college self-study, with a focus on standards for which the committee is seeking information to guide it in completing the evaluation.
