Welcome from the President

Dr. Jeff RafnAs you begin to fill the halls, interact with faculty in the classroom, and meet with staff to assist you on your educational journey, we celebrate that each member of our College community has value – Everyone Has Worth.  Here at NWTC, we are committed to embracing every individual, providing an inviting community, and creating a respectful and stimulating student experience that is necessary for intellectual and personal growth.
In the spirit of this belief, we invite you to become engaged in your educational experience.  Participate in clubs and programming, take part in service learning opportunities, and get to know fellow classmates and learn about their backgrounds – your fellow students come from different places, Tribal Nations, and countries.  Seize the opportunity to learn from and with each other because each member of the NWTC community is here for a reason. You are encouraged to discover what that is.

From the time you step foot on this campus, you are valued, and we sincerely appreciate the opportunity to be a part of your campus experience. You are worthy of our support, worthy of being heard, and worthy of making a difference!

Welcome to the NWTC family.


H. Jeffrey Rafn, Ph.D.
