NMC board to issue determination on Hart’s contract status today


After hours of deliberation, the Northern Marianas College is set to issue a statement on the contract status of college president Dr. Sharon Hart.

The NMC Board of Regents continued yesterday their discussions on Hart’s contract.

Hart’s contract expires in July, Saipan Tribune learned.

“A statement will be released tomorrow once everything is reviewed for legal sufficiency,” said NMC director of institutional effectiveness Jacqueline Che.

The NMC board completed their evaluation of Hart last November. Then-board chair Frank Rabauliman could not comment on the outcome of the evaluation because it was a personnel issue. The board evaluates the NMC president annually based on goals and objectives they both agree on the previous year.

Last fiscal year’s end goals for NMC included secured reaffirmation of accreditation, which was achieved this year in February. NMC was also approved for a six-year accreditation with the WASC Senior College and University Commission in July. Other goals assessed in the evaluation included priorities in student success, continuous quality improvement, and the CNMI workforce.
