Will you be contributing to your school’s Self Study?
Are you hosting a Visiting Team in 2019-20 or 2020-21?
Do you want to learn more about the NWAIS accreditation process?



Schools hosting accreditation visits in the coming two years are strongly encouraged to send a team to this workshop.Come connect, ask questions and share ideas with teams from other schools also in the Self Study process.

Attend this workshop led by the NWAIS Director of Accreditation and an experienced Self Study Coordinator to learn about:

  • How the Self Study fits into the accreditation process
  • The role of the Self Study Coordinator
  • How to design your school’s Self Study process 
  • How to work with the Team Chair and Visiting Team



NWAIS offers two workshops over the course of the school year to better meet the needs of schools. Questions at the beginning of the process can be different from those closer to the visit. Although the program will be similar, the conversation may differ based on the needs of attendees. Come once or come twice. Should the event fill, first-time attendees will be given preference.
