North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA) accreditation
Barclay College is currently completing its self study for anticipated accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). Committees of faculty, administrators, board members, community leaders, and alumni were established last fall to address the accreditation criteria in the self study. Those documents are being compiled to create our self study document. The study will be submitted to the Board of Trustees at their annual meeting in October for approval and then sent to NCA. We look forward to a visit from the accreditation team later in the academic year. Dr. Glenn Leppert is the director of the accreditation process on campus and we are looking forward to the successful completion of this goal. Questions, comments, or inquiries can be submitted to Dr. Leppert.
