We specialize in teaching, facilitation and meeting learning outcomes

Because we’re a teaching-focused university (and not a research institution), our expertise lies in creating learning environments geared to participant needs. What this means for you is that you learn from instructors whose primary task is to ensure you learn what you need to learn. This dedication to teaching, combined with extensive experience (all our instructors have proven track records in the business world) means you benefit from a learning experience that is shaped by peerless instructors who are experts in their respective fields.

A facilitated learning model

Our ‘facilitated learning model’ allows you to take more control of the learning process, so you can focus on what is important to you and your organization. Under this model, the instructor’s role is greater than “a sage on the stage”— it is also that of a facilitator, a “guide by your side” providing resources, coaching and support to learners so they can come away with practical tools and techniques they need right now to meet the challenges in their workplace.

Northwest Commission on College and Universities (NWCCU) Accreditation

The organization recognizes higher education institutions for performance, integrity and quality to merit the confidence of the educational community and the public. It is an independent, non-profit membership organization recognized as the regional authority on educational quality and institutional effectiveness of higher education institutions in the Pacific Northwest.
