Work began on the 2011 self-study in the spring of 2007 with the formation of the Self-study Executive Committee. When creating the committee, an emphasis was placed on academic diversity with committee members taken from administrative and faculty positions from across campus.
As part of the self-study process, the College began a self-examination with a revision of NCMC’s mission, goals, and enduring values providing the nexus of the process. This also coincided with a major facilities planning initiative. This self-study represents several years of campus-wide work, research, and reflection.
