V5I2: Reflecting on the 2022 NWCCU Annual Conference

Dec. 8, 2022 ⋅ Categories: Beacon, NWCCU


Thank you to those who joined us for the 2022 NWCCU Annual Conference held at the Hyatt Regency in Seattle, WA November 2-4. It was wonderful to see everyone in person once again as we welcomed over 430 attendees from across 150 institutions.

The theme of the conference was Transformative Education.

Bruce Harell, Mayor of Seattle, welcomed the attendees and proclaimed November 3, 2022 as Higher Education Accreditation Day.

We had outstanding and informative sessions on higher education policy, advancing DEI efforts, the value of prison education, and much, much more! Thank you to our incredible plenary speakers and to our institutional presenters who shared the ways in which they have transformed education on their campuses. For more information on these sessions (as well as presentation materials!), please visit NWCCU’s conference site.

Congratulations once again to NWCCU’s 2022 Beacon Award winners: Weber State University, Western Oregon University, and Westminster College. Please check back for our next issue of the Beacon, where we will hear more from these three institutions about their award-winning programs.

As we reflect on the 2022 Annual Conference and gear up for 2023, we are eager to implement suggestions we’ve received on event scheduling, pre-conference workshops, and session offerings. We encourage attendees to continue to share their reflections and feedback via our post-conference survey. Your feedback is greatly appreciated as we begin to plan for NWCCU CON 2023!

Thank you again to our Gold sponsors: Academic Search and Vanguard. And thank you to our Silver and Bronze sponsors: CBRE, Gardner Institute, Concourse Syllabus, and BECU.

We look forward to seeing you next year!
