University of Puerto Rico!

Dear Commons Community,

During the past five days I have been at the University of Puerto Rico – Bayamon on a Middle States accreditation visit.  It was quite an interesting experience.    A developing story that has been under the news radar is the ongoing student demonstrations at the University of Puerto Rico for the past year or so.  The situation was/is serious enough  that ten of the eleven  universities in the system were put on accreditation probation.  My work on the accreditation team precludes my discussing any details.  Suffice to say that this visit was one of the more serious evaluations that I have ever  had to do in my capacity as a  Middle States evaluator.

  1. Situations as these are rampant in developing countries. An alternative to the traditional Face-to-Face requirements in most of the higher education programs may be a well structured online learning program in each department.
