about SERI

Welcome to School for e-Education Research & Innovation (SERI). SERI has always walked a step ahead in the area of educational delivery. In our quest to continuously innovate and bring world class educational services to students, SERI is committed to continuous and sustainable innovation. In this new age educational demands have drastically evolved, creating a special need for quality control in education. We have enhanced the learning experience further by bringing NWAC (Northwest Accreditation Commission), one of the global leaders in educational accreditation, to India.

NWAC (Northwest Accreditation Commission) was born as a voluntary organization named 'Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools' way back in 1917. During the existence of around a century NWAC has changed multiple titles and created a huge legacy. Today NWAC is a premier accreditation body which has fulfilled dreams of millions of students by providing their accreditation to various educational platforms. NWAC is synonymous with innovation and trust through their superior curriculum, detailed instructions and expert assessment criterions.

The Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools was formed as a voluntary organization on April 5, 1917 with a membership of 25 secondary schools and eight higher institutions in four Northwestern states. By December 2007, this membership increased to over 1900. Presently, the organization accredits in seven states: Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.

In December 1974, the title of the organization was changed to: Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. In December 2001, the association's name was changed to the Northwest Association of Schools and of Colleges and Universities, and on February 1, 2004 the association's name was changed to the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. In 2010, as a result of a restructuring plan, the name was changed to Northwest Accreditation Commission.

On December 5, 2011, the NWAC Commission and Board of Trustees voted at the annual meeting to approve new bylaws that officially made NWAC a division of AdvancED. Beginning July 1, 2012 all operations of NWAC are under the governance of AdvancED through its Northwest Regional Office.
