EOU showcases programs, access and success
June 19, 2018 LA GRANDE, Ore. – High-quality programs, access for all, and the tools to live, learn and succeed greet Eastern Oregon University students each fall. This year, an accreditation team from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) will also be on campus Oct. 29 to 31 in pursuit of these themes.
The visit accompanies EOU’s Year Seven Report to maintain its accreditation from the NWCCU, which assesses the institution as a whole to provide reasonable assurance of the quality of opportunities available to students. Accreditors evaluate the institution’s resources, ensuring it can achieve its stated purposes now and in the foreseeable future.
EOU has been continuously accredited since 1931. EOU submitted a Year Three accreditation report in fall 2013, followed by an ad hoc report in 2014.
Further questions or comments regarding EOU’s accredited status can be sent directly to the NWCCU at 8060 165th Avenue N.E., Suite 100, Redmond, Wash., 98052. Comments can also be submitted via phone at (425) 558-4224, and must be received by Sept. 29. Comments are considered with regard to an institution’s qualification for candidacy or accreditation, and signed comments are forwarded to the institution, evaluation committee and commission.
