WVC Mission

Wenatchee Valley College enriches North Central Washington by serving educational and cultural needs of communities and residents throughout the service area. The college is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion for all students and employees and provides high-quality transfer, liberal arts, professional/technical, basic skills and continuing education for students of diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds.

WVC accreditation reports


The 2022 Mid-Cycle Evaluation is used by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) to guage the institution's preparedness for full accreditation review in spring of 2025 for Standard 2 and spring 2026 for Standard 1. There are no commendations or recommendations in the Mid-Cycle Evaluation.  The required report is an abbreviated version of the report required in the 2026 Self-Study.  The evaluation is considered to be collegial and advisory.


The purpose of the Fall 2021 ad hoc evaluations was to assess progress made towards two recommendations made by Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) in spring 2019 concerning a system of learning outcomes assessment and concerning the use of learning outcomes assessment.


WVC prepared an ad hoc report and a peer evaluation addressing recommendations put forth by NWCCU in 2019. In January 2021, NWCCU accepted the 2020 ad hoc report and changed the recommendation concerning Omak campus safety to "fulfilled." View the NWCCU letter of action.


In 2019, NWCCU reaffirmed the accreditation of WVC following review of the Year Seven Self-Evaluation Report, the Peer-Evaluation Report, the optional Institutional Response to the Peer-Evaluation Report, and information received as part of the institutional representative meeting with Commissioners. In their letter of action, NWCCU commended and recommended the following.

The Commission commends Wenatchee Valley College for:

  • The accomplishments of faculty, staff and administration in making the holistic support of student success a central aspect of the college culture. The college recognizes the importance of supporting all students, including the unique needs of non‐traditional, first-generation, and underrepresented students.
  • Genuine efforts to create a diverse, welcoming and inclusive environment for students, faculty and staff of all backgrounds. These efforts are notable for the breadth and depth of the work and for the pride in success that is evident throughout the Wenatchee Valley College community.
  • Its responsiveness across the spectrum of workforce, social, demographic, economic and environmental needs throughout the service region. These efforts have been creatively driven by college outreach to provide existing services in unconventional locations; by agile responsiveness to community requests; and by solution‐oriented responsiveness to external events.
  • Its work surrounding the creation of the new strategic plan. These efforts were comprehensive, participatory, and focused on creating a plan closely aligned with the college’s mission and core themes.
As of February 2022, Wenatchee Valley College has no out of compliance recommendations.
