Dr. Terry Barmann, the director of Northwest Missouri State University-Kansas City, has been appointed to the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) Accreditation Commission as a four-year institutional representative.
Barmann will serve a two-year term, beginning April 10. In addition to attending NACEP's national conference Oct. 9-10 in Washington, D.C., Barmann will participate in electronic meetings and conference calls throughout the year.
NACEP is the leading membership organization supporting programs that successfully transition students from high school to college through college credit-bearing courses. Members offer college courses to high school students through a variety of delivery methods and use a range of terms such as concurrent enrollment, dual enrollment, dual credit and early college. NACEP’s national network of 400 colleges and universities, 50 high schools and school districts and 25 state agencies and system offices share knowledge about best practices, research and advocacy.
The Accreditation Commission manages NACEP’s accreditation process, reviews Peer Review Team reports and makes accreditation decisions. It operates as an autonomous unit of NACEP in close collaboration with the Board of Directors.
As director of Northwest-Kansas City, Barmann oversees the extension of the University’s Maryville campus that provides educational solutions in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Located at the state-of-the-art Northland Innovation Campus in Gladstone, Missouri, Northwest-Kansas City offers opportunities to complete undergraduate degree programs or advance through graduate programs. It also offers dual credit coursework through its partnership with Northland CAPS, professional education graduate degrees, client-based educational opportunities and community seminars as well as customized education and training.
Additionally, Northwest recently announced a partnership with Metropolitan Community College (MCC) to pilot a concurrent enrollment program that provides students with an opportunity to complete both an Associate of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree in four years or less while allowing the two institutions to develop a more seamless transfer process and remove challenges that add time and cost to degree completion.
