Aaniiih Nakoda College Newsletter
Winter 2017

For the past six months, Aaniiih Nakoda College administrators, staff and faculty have been very busy preparing for the college's comprehensive accreditation review. In February 2017, the college will submit its Year Seven Self-Evaluation Report to the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities and a team of peer evaluators. On April 10-12, 2017, the peer evaluation team will visit ANC for three days of intensive, face-to-face meetings with board members, administrators, faculty, staff and students. Following the visit, the team will prepare an evaluation report that will serve as the basis for their recommendation to the Commission regarding the reaffirmation of the college's accreditation status.

The purpose of the accreditation review is to evaluate the college's capacity to effectively achieve its educational mission and goals. The process is designed to assure academic quality, enhance institutional effectiveness, and foster continuous improvement among all participating institutions, including Aaniiih Nakoda College. Accreditation also is critical for a number of issues related to student financial aid, transfer of college courses, and access to federal grant dollars. Without our accreditation status, ANC would be unable to operate, so this is an important year for all of us.
