College completes year three of institution-wide accreditation assessment

March 17, 2014

Lewis & Clark has submitted its Year Three Self-Evaluation Report to the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), our institutional accrediting body. 

This report was completed as part of the second phase of a seven-year reaffirmation cycle. The next step in the process will be a virtual visit from the NWCCU evaluation committee during the month of April.

Associate Provost for Institutional Research and Planning Mark Figueroa is Lewis & Clark’s accreditation liaison officer.

“Institutional accreditation is extremely important because it qualifies our students and faculty for federal funds,” Figueroa said. “Additionally, it gives Lewis & Clark a clear endorsement of the integrity and quality of the institution’s mission, educational programs, and administration.”

Last week, the 100-page report was made available online for viewing by those with a Lewis & Clark log-in. Community members are encouraged to review the report and may contact Figueroa with questions.
