Western Oregon University (WOU) is recognized as a fully-accredited higher education institution by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities*. Accreditation is an ongoing seven-year process that is intended to ensure that universities deserve the confidence of the community and students. The Commission reconfirmed WOU's educational quality and effectiveness in 2011, enabling us to continue to receive federal funds to support teaching, research and student financial aid.

 

In April 2013, the Commission will be conducting the 'Year Three' review and evaluation of WOU's Report on Resources and Capacity. This report will describe the ways in which we have put the necessary organizational structures into place to meet our mission and goals as a university. As part of this review, we invite you to share your comments about our qualifications for accreditation. Your letter will be shared with the evaluation committee, the Commission, as well as WOU administrators.

 

Here's how you can comment on WOU's performance:

  1. Be sure to sign your letter. Send it so that it will be received by March 1, 2013.
  2. Send your letter to:
    Dr. Sandra Elman, President
    Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities
    Suite 100
    8060 165th Ave. NE
    Redmond, WA 98052

 

For information or assistance:

  1. You may contact the Commission at 425-558-4224.
  2. You can find information on the Commission's policy A-5 "Public Notification and Third Party Comments Regarding Full-Scale Evaluations" on the Commission's website at www. nwccu.org. Click the 'Standards and Policies' link, then click the 'Operational Policies' link.

 

*The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities is an independent, non-profit membership organization recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Education as the regional authority to evaluate and offer accreditation in the states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.
