In order to maintain institutional accreditation through its regional accrediting body, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), EWU is required to undergo a self-study process every seven years and host a site visit by an accreditation team. The accreditation process is an opportunity for the university community to reflect upon its strengths and weaknesses and its history and future.
As part of the seven-year re-accreditation cycle, NWCCU also requires institutions to provide a year-one report in the year following re-accreditation and a mid-cycle report two years later. It is not unusual for NWCCU to ask for periodic ad hoc reports as well.
EWU is committed to being transparent to the university community and public at large about its self assessment and the evaluation of the institution by its peers and accrediting body. To that end, you are invited to read EWU’s reports and NWCCU's responses to them by clicking on the links in the tabs below.
