Community is valued at NWSC.
Differences of Opinion Welcome
Our faculty, staff, and student body, combined, have aptly been described as a “mosaic of society”.
We pride ourselves on having students from all walks of life, making the cross-pollination of ideas and sharing of diverse perspectives possible. Stimulating, yet respectful, debates and conversations concerning the most pertinent and contentious social issues of our time are encouraged, resulting in an education that is holistic and students who are that much more well rounded. Besides reinforcing our sense of community, these discussions help to confront and examine our views of society and the world, so we can act accordingly toward improving the world for everyone.
At NWSC, we take being community minded seriously. We are driven by the idea of paying it forward. Our students are shaped by their experiences and the many community service projects they take on each year is intended to instill an understanding that we are only as strong as our neighborhoods and communities. As future leaders and drivers of the economy, our students see the impact and the value of being community minded first-hand.
These projects also ensure that material learned in class is reinforced and our students sharpen their skills by doing community work. Is it any wonder that an impressive 90% of NWSC graduates achieve employment in healthcare?
