The days of Northwest Community College are numbered, the name that is.
The college is contemplating a name change to better reflect its position as a school.
College president, Ken Burt, says NWCC has outgrown its current name. He says one big issue is the “community college” portion of the name, which is causing misunderstanding with international partners.
NWCC hired a consulting firm to help them narrow down a list of potential names.
Once a name is decided, it will still take some time for the official name change to take place.
Burt says changing over to the new name shouldn’t be too difficult, with only the large signs around campus being a major cost.
