College of Micronesia – FSM Mission Fulfillment Indicators

Mission Statement: The College of Micronesia-FSM is a learner-centered institution of higher education that is committed to the success of the Federated States of Micronesia by providing academic, career and technical educational programs characterized by continuous improvement and best practices.

Accreditation Standard I.A.2. The institution uses data to determine how effectively it is accomplishing its mission, and whether the mission directs institutional priorities in meeting the educational needs of students.


Mission fulfillment is determined by the college meeting a minimum threshold. Achievement of each individual indicator is measured relative to a range based on a corresponding threshold level and represented by achievement status.

  • Green is achieved;
  • Yellow is minimally achieved; and
  • Red is not achieved.

COM-FSM is considered to be fulfilling its mission provided no more than seven (29%) of the 24 total indicators are at the red level so that the college attains at least 17 (71%) of its indicators within the achieved (green) or minimally achieved (yellow) range.

College provides higher education (HE) access to all four states of the FSM (Fall 2017 College)

State | College | Census |
Difference
Chuukese | 16.0% | 47.4% | -31.4%
Kosraean | 11.4% | 6.4% | 5.0%
Pohnpeian | 58.6% | 35.1% | 23.5%
Yapese | 13.3% | 11.1% | 2.2%
Total | 99.3% | 100%

*Keeping in mind that not all factors are within the direct control of COM-FSM. However, the college is tasked with taking efforts to improve access and equity when there is imbalance in representation.

Census population for all four states compared to student population within COM-FSM:

Green = COM-FSM provides HE access to all four states and at least 10% of the college’s students will come from each FSM state.

Yellow = Direct access is provided, but less than 10% of the college’s students come from each FSM state; however college can document efforts to mitigate under-representation.

Red = Either direct access to all four states is not provided or there is one or more under-represented population for whom the college cannot document actions to mitigate imbalance.
