The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) accredits institutions of higher education by applying data- and evidence-informed standards and processes to support continuous improvements and promote equitable student achievement and success.
Accreditation focuses on student achievement, learning, and success; quality assurance; accountability; and continuous improvement. NWCCU is developing and implementing a data-informed decision support system to support the accreditation evaluation process.
NWCCU is making available public dashboards that include data for institutions that underwent their Year Seven Evaluation of Institutional Effectiveness during the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 accreditation cycles. These dashboards can be accessed here.
