Distance learning is growing at CCRI.As the start of the Spring 2010 semester signals a fresh beginning, we are pleased to be able to share with you some good news. The New England Association of Schools and Colleges Inc. (NEASC) recently informed us that the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education has accepted CCRI's report on distance education at the community college and that the distance learning programming will be included with our institutional NEASC accreditation. Congratulations to all who worked on the refinement of our distance learning program and the related NEASC report. Both were jobs well done.
