College of Marshall Islands receives positive report

10:39 am on 21 January 2008

The College of the Marshall Islands has received its most positive

report ever from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in the lead up to last week¹s full commission meeting in California that reviewed the Majuro-based college's probationary status.

The WASC evaluation team that visited in November has reported that all

outstanding recommendations for improvement have been met and said a

remarkable transformation had taken place at the college.

The WASC meeting in California also announced important changes in the accreditation process that will affect CMI next year as the college proceeds with its self-study.

The self-study is the basic document needed for a six-year term of accreditation renewal.

College President, Wilson Hess, says he is hopeful the college will be removed from warning status when the WASC's decision is released next month.
