NWCC enters final stave of community engagement on proposed Coast Mountain College name

September 20, 2017

Northwest Community College has reportedly entered its final stage of engaging with the community to discuss its proposed new name—Coast Mountain College. The proposed name is the product of two years of research and extensive strategic planning that involved staff, faculty, students, alumni, and community members. The strategic planning process specifically focused on identifying short- and long-term milestones that will support the college’s goal of becoming the college of choice for experiential place-based learning by 2027. “The work we did with staff, students and community around the strategic planning process really demonstrated that the core purpose of the college is to create adventurous pathways to transform lives,” says President Ken Burt. NWCC
