New CNMI college president vows to restore full accreditation

9:18 am on 12 July 2011

The new president of Northern Marianas College, Sharon Hart, says she will work to restore the institution's full accreditation in her first year.

Ms Hart made the pronouncement as she was welcomed by staff and students during an open forum at the college's campus.

The Accrediting Commission for Junior Community Colleges lifted the local college's show-cause status on Friday, placing it under the less severe probation status.

Ms Hart said the key focus of her next three months is to prepare this probation report for the next visit by the accrediting commission slated for sometime in October or November this year.
