Accreditation Team On Campus to Evalute Northeast Community College

NORFOLK - A team representing the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association has been on the Northeast Community College campus this week, conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the local institution.  Northeast President Dr. Michael Chipps says the team left Norfolk Wednesday morning impressed with the community college.  Chipps says that, in addition to evaluating Northeast’s strengths, the team also looks for ways the college can become even stronger. He says some of those areas will be professional development and better integration of strategic planning and budgeting.  The evaluation team will issue a report later this year. A self-study of the college was completed before the visit, and that is available on the Northeast web site, northeast.edu.
