[ROSEMONT, IL] – Northwestern College announced today that it was recently invited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) –one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States which accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions – to participate in the Self-Study Fair at the HLC’s 2012 Annual Conference in Chicago. The HLC invited Northwestern College to showcase its self-study report at the event for other higher education institutions to learn from as they prepared for their own school’s reaccreditation process. A self-study report and peer evaluation are the two major components in applying for continued accreditation, and Northwestern College was recently granted a 10-year period of reaccreditation.

The College accepted the invitation and this week the two Self-Study coordinators, Diane Marek, Vice President of Academic Affairs, and Margie Bennecke, Director of Administration-Bridgeview Campus, represented the College at the conference, exhibited the College’s Self-Study Report and other documents, and answered the questions of various college and university administrators and faculty preparing for reaccreditation visits to their own institutions.

Founded in 1902, Northwestern College is a family-owned higher education institution with over a century of history in the Chicagoland area. It has grown from one campus in Chicago serving a handful of students in accounting and stenography, to three campuses (Bridgeview, Chicago-Jefferson Park and Naperville) serving 2,000 students and offering associate in applied science degree programs and certificates in the areas of allied health, nursing, business, paralegal, and criminal justice.
