Leadership and faculty representing Northwest Missouri State University and North Central Missouri College gathered Wednesday to celebrate the two institutions’ strong and long-lasting relationship while participating in roundtable discussions to explore new opportunities.
About 40 Northwest and North Central faculty and staff members reviewed existing articulation agreements and discussed positive outcomes of their partnership as well as new opportunities for courses, programming and services.
“When things are working and they’re working well, sometimes you don’t pay attention to them, or because they’re working, you kind of forget about the significance of what you’re doing collectively,” Northwest Provost Dr. Timothy Mottet said. “We feel we’ve got something that’s working rather well and thought it was important to pause and recognize the work that’s been done and the work that we would like to continue doing.”
Mottet noted Northwest and North Central, located in Trenton, Mo., began their partnership in 1996 with a reciprocal admission program. In 2007, that partnership was enhanced with a memorandum of understanding and a joint admissions program.
More recently, in 2012, and Northwest and North Central established the state’s first reverse transfer agreement, allowing students who have earned a minimum of 15 credit hours at North Central and at least 75 credit hours at Northwest to receive a marketable associate degree while pursuing a bachelor’s degree.
During the last two decades, nearly 600 students have transferred to Northwest from North Central and the schools have formed some 40 articulation agreements.
