NMC Submits Show Cause Report (March 15, 2011)

The Northern Marianas College today submitted its March 15, 2011, Show Cause Report to the Accreditation Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) - Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

The Show Cause Report contains evidence that demonstrates the College’s compliance with accreditation standards, eligibility requirements, and Commission recommendations.

In a Special Board meeting held on March 14, 2011, the NMC Board of Regents voted unanimously to endorse the Report’s submission to WASC.

“I commend the staff, faculty and students of NMC for all their hard work in completing the Show Cause report,” said Interim President Lorraine T. Cabrera.

The composition and creation of the report engaged the efforts of the entire NMC community. As part of the college’s effort to keep the College’s stakeholders involved in the preparation of the Show Cause Report, it recently held an Accreditation Workshop where faculty, staff and students participated in reviewing and providing input on key sections of the Report. Faculty, staff and students have also served on the various standard teams that took the lead in preparing the Report.
