Collaborating with the College Board
The Education Council has joint authority with the College Board to evaluate curriculum, courses, programs, or course credit transferability from other institutions or other departments within NLC.
The Council also has an advisory role to the College Board for other issues, including educational goals and criteria for certificates, diplomas, and degrees.
Meet our members
NLC’s Education Council is made up of elected representatives from faculty, support staff, and the student body. The council also features (non-voting) administration members and members of the Board.
