HONOLULU (AP) - Members of the University of Hawaii Board of Regents have been briefed by the leaders of two accrediting commissions.
The president of the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities said the progress being made to improve the quality of programs and services at all 10 campuses in the UH system has been impressive.
Ralph Wolff noted positive reports following accreditation visits last year to the UH-Manoa and UH-Hilo campuses.
The president of the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, Barbara Beno, said Hawaii's community colleges are in ''great shape.''
But Wolff and Beno expressed concern at the university's budget situation, a challenge, they say, that is being faced by colleges and universities throughout the country.
