The College of the Marshall Islands (CMI) is a regionally accredited autonomous community college offering high school equivalency, community extension, student development, certificate, and associate degree programs in liberal arts & sciences, business administration, elementary education, and nursing. The College serves primarily students from within the Micronesian region and is designated as the national post-secondary institution for the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), as enacted in RMI PL 1992-13, The College of the Marshall Islands Act.
The College of the Marshall Islands proudly stands as the only college established specifically to serve the Marshallese people when it was issued its charter on October 10, 1989. Since then, CMI has seen rapid improvement in facilities, education, and leadership as it underwent a transformation to begin serving not only the community of Majuro but also the wider Pacific region as well.
The main campus of CMI is located on Majuro, the capitol of the Marshall Islands. Amidst the hustle and bustle of this busy urban center, our students attend classes designed specifically for their needs, with international and multicultural instructors and professors focused on getting students to meet their individual goals and achieve life-long dreams. Besides an enriching environment, CMI students have access to Residence Hall facilities, newly built Tolemour Hall, a state-of-the-art Nursing Laboratory, a new Energy Building and Classroom block, classrooms in Wapepe Hall which overlook the ocean side, as well as the latest resources in a fully functioning library. As of 2010, the Uliga campus has been undergoing an exciting renovation to continue its mission of serving the students and community. Building plans include a newly designed Administration Building, a College Center, and a two-storey Library.
The Arrak Campus, located in the lush community of Arrak, Majuro, houses the Land Grant Cooperative Research and Extension Program - a program dedicated to improving the quality of life in the Marshall Islands through research and community based workshops. The Arrak campus recently celebrated the official opening of the Aquaculture Hatchery, which provides much of the facilities for marine science research.
CMI sets a high standard for research, and as such has major commitments not only to marine science but also to teacher education and Marshallese cultural preservation among many others. Its commitment to the investigation of the nuclear legacy of our country has resulted in the Nuclear Institute, housed under the Marshallese Studies program, the only program of its kind.
CMI welcomes you, and encourages you to continue your exploration of this website as a resource for understanding our institution.
