On behalf of the Corporate Board, Board of Regents, Administration, and Faculty,
I welcome you to Northwest Suburban College.
With my years of experience in academia, I have been fortunate to watch the changes occur within academic institutions. My observations led to the realization that with the many challenges facing higher education in the United States, education requires a fresh approach, one that fosters the education of all students—especially disadvantaged minorities. With this in mind, we have developed an institution that recognizes the needs of today’s students, those who we wish not to burden with lengthy programs and accumulated debt. As a result, Northwest Suburban College was established in 2008 as an independent, private, not-for-profit institution committed to providing quality, accelerated, and affordable education.
NWSC strives to disseminate knowledge with passion and innovation, fostering each and every student’s educational goals. In order to serve a variety of students who will, in turn, serve society at large, the College offers various credentials, including allied health certification programs as well as associate degrees. Our graduates’ achievements are made possible by NWSC’s small college environment and low teacher-to-student ratio—which provides one-on-one attention and a personalized education to each student—as well as our broad affiliations with various externship and placement sites.
Ultimately, NWSC’s success is due in large part to the dedicated faculty, staff, and of course, our aspiring students. Our cohesion creates an environment for lifelong experiences, including lasting friendships, a strong sense of support and encouragement, and the greater success of each and every student. I hope you will reap the benefits of a caring community who believes in the power of education.
