On October 4, 2017, the Office of Institutional Policy, Risk Management and Compliance will issue an update to the federally mandated compliance training module entitled “Preventing Sexual Misconduct – Title IX”. Completion of this training is required by all faculty and staff.
We apologize if you have recently completely another version of this assignment, however, NWACC is required by federal law to update and reissue this training annually. This training course will be emailed to all employees with specific instructions on how to login. The module will take between 15-30 minutes to finish and should be completed within ten (10) days of assignment.
Once you have completed the course, you will have the ability to print a certificate for your records. There are no additional steps required once you have finished the module, as our records will be automatically updated. If you have any questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your diligence in keeping NWACC compliant with state and federal regulations.
A Word Problems Math Workshop for Beginning Algebra (and other) students (on Linear equations and Systems of linear equations problem types) will be offered by the Math Center on Wednesday, Oct 4, from 12:00 noon -1:00 p.m. in SC 338.
The final product from a group of student filmmakers will be presented in a red carpet event Oct. 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. at NorthWest Arkansas Community College in Bentonville.
The student filmmakers were part of a film camp led by Joey Travolta’s Inclusion Films in April of this year. Travolta directed a series of short films at NWACC with the help of some Arkansas high school juniors and seniors with disabilities.
NWACC’s theatre program and students were helpful in script development and in assisting with the “stage management” of the various filming locations. NWACC student Katie Cook also provided invaluable assistance, mentoring and good will. Cook attended an Inclusion Camp in California, and her amazing spirit and enthusiasm were credited in drawing Travolta and Inclusion Films to northwest Arkansas in the first place.
The Oct. 5 premiere will be in White Auditorium on the NWACC campus. A short ceremony with light snacks and drink will precede the premiere of three film camp teams’ films.
The premiere event is hosted by Arkansas Transition Services and Arkansas Rehabilitation Services.
Tickets are $15 and may be obtained at the following link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/inclusion-film-camp-film-premiere-tickets-36905132244

Mental health is a key part of your overall health. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health professional – it’s a checkup from your neck up. To take a screening, CLICK HERE or go to NWACC/Campus and Community Resources. Screenings do not provide a diagnosis of any medical condition. The information provided by the screenings do not substitute for a full evaluation by a health professional.
