1. CWI INSTITUITON SUMMARY:At the inception of the College of Western Idaho (CWI) in 2007, the Treasure Valley was the lastmetropolitan area in the country lacking a community college. In March of that year, the IdahoLegislature appropriated funds for the College. Later that May, a supermajority of voters in Adaand Canyon counties voted to form a community college district. With the monetary support ofthe Albertson Foundation and the appointment by the Idaho State Board of Education of theCollege’s first Board of Trustees, the College of Western Idaho was launched. The Collegeofficially opened its doors to 1,208 students in January 2009. Since that time, CWI has becomeone of the fastest growing community colleges in the country. CWI is currently the largestcommunity college in Idaho serving over 32,000 students and a 10 county region in southwesternIdaho.The College of Western Idaho offers a full range of academic and career-technical coursesleading to an Associate of Arts or Science degree, Associate of Applied Science degrees,continuing education, and certificates. The College also offers Basic Skills Education to helpprepare for a GED, Dual Credit for high school students, and fast-track career training forworking professionals. Classes are offered at a variety of campuses throughout Ada and CanyonCounties with a main campus located in Nampa.CWI has achieved significant accomplishments in the past four years (2015-2018). Theseaccomplishments include: Enrollment Growth – continued enrollment reflects the continued need in CWI’sservice area. For the academic year ending in 2018, CWI served over 32,000 students. Accreditation – received stand-alone accreditation from the Northwest Commission onColleges and Universities (NWCCU) in 2016 allowing the launch of new programs anddegrees. Tuition – CWI remains focused on affordable access and hasn’t raised tuition in the lastthree years. Main & Whitewater Park Site in Boise Acquisition – will provide for a permanentcenter serving the eastern population of the Treasure Valley.1

Dual Credit – CWI is Idaho’s largest provider to dual credit to students.

These needsinclude: Funding:o Right Sizing – From CWI’s inception, CWI has not been funded by the State atcomparable levels of the other community colleges. This situation has furthercompounded as the college has grown significantly as noted above. Based uponan average weighted credit hour funded value compared with the College of2

Southern Idaho (CSI) and North Idaho College (NIC), CWI is underfunded by 6.6 million. Closing this funding gap is a significant critical need for CWI.(Reflects CWI analysis completed 5.24.18)o Positions and Funding Shift – Currently only 28% of CWI’s full-time positionsare state funded compared to 44% of our peers (CSI & NIC). This places asignificant burden on CWI to address CEC increases when proposed andapproved by the state, requiring CWI to address the difference through its generalfunds. It is critical that additional current full-time positions are shifted to alignwith the other institutions. (Reflects CWI analysis completed 11.22.16)o Facilities – CWI’s significant growth has placed enormous pressure on theCollege to provide adequate space and services to meet the needs of students andthe community. Out of necessity to meet these demands, CWI currently leases alarge portion of its buildings in non-campus locations spread out across the valley.Continued funding support is needed to allow CWI to consolidate from theseleased locations into true owned campus environments.3
