Carole Falcon Chandler, president of Fort Belknap College in Montana, is among four newly-elected members of the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. The commission accredits two-year and four-year educational institutions in Alaska , Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.
Falcon Chandler (Assiniboine) is the only tribal college president on the commission and the second to be appointed. Dr. Joe McDonald (Salish-Kootenai), president of Salish Kootenai College in Montana, was the first, but his term expired.
Her term runs through 2006, when she will be eligible for a second, three-year term. “It is an honor for Fort Belknap College and the tribal college family,” she told the Great Falls Tribune.
