Quote from the President
"North Idaho College primarily serves the five northern counties of Idaho through its main campus in Coeur d’Alene, a Workforce Training Center in Post Falls, and three outreach centers in our more rural communities. NIC is a comprehensive community college that provides both credit and non-credit programs to meet the varied needs of our students, businesses, and diverse communities. The college plays a vital role in workforce development in the region and is responsive to the needs of employers currently here and those seeking to relocate their companies to the area."
- NIC is one of the oldest community colleges in the West, grown directly from community roots and founded in 1933 by a group of women that went door-to-door to collect money to get the college started.
- Located in the heart of North Idaho’s resort region and bordering beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene, North Idaho College boasts a highly-respected, well-developed outdoor leadership, resort recreation management, and outdoor activity program that utilizes the region’s spectacular outdoor recreational setting as its classroom.
- NIC’s rich teaching excellence is showcased through its numerous national student newspaper and journalism awards, Business Professionals of America awards, and five-star Phi Theta Kappa status.
- NIC is proud of its highly successful athletics programs that include 12 national wrestling championships and the 2011 national women’s basketball champions, in addition to numerous other national rankings, placings, and awards.
