Southwestern Accreditation Renewal: Public Comment Phase @ Tioga 506 (for any questions about the process)
Jan 13 – Mar 8 all-day

Southwestern Oregon Community College (SWOCC) is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). The college is updating its accreditation this year, a standard evaluation process that involves a visit from a NWCCU team and a public input and comment phase. The comment phase is open now through March 8. Interested parties can direct their comments to: Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, 8060 165th Avenue NE, Redmond, WA 98052; or learn more by calling the commission office at (425) 558-4224.

SWOCC underwent accreditation in 2012, and is keeping with the NWCCU’s accreditation schedule for this 2020 update. The College will host representatives from the commission for a formal visit April 8-10. For the public comment phase, signed comments are forwarded, as received, to the institution, evaluation committee and the commission.

Accreditation from NWCCU demonstrates that SWOCC meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality evaluated through a peer-review process. An accredited college or university is one that has the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Evaluating institutional integrity is part of the accrediting process.

To view a copy of NWCCU’s public notification and third-party comments regarding full-scale evaluation, visit nwccu.org, go to “Standards and Policies,” then “Operational Policies.”

For questions regarding SWOCC’s accreditation, contact Ali Mageehon, Vice President of Instruction, at (541) 888-7417.

On February 27th, 2020 Peter and the Wolf returns to The Hales Center For The Performing Arts, featuring Ballet Pacific. This outreach is an offering for all third graders in our community. The opportunity for these young people might be the only time they are exposed to dance in a professional manner and in a venue as beautiful as The Hales Center For The Performing Arts. Through educational outreach programs children of all ages are exposed to the art of dance and the power of creative arts. Our hope is that they will be inspired to get out there and make their own dreams come true.
