The Micronesia and South Pacific Program was established in 1988 at the University of Oregon to assist with the development of sustainable communities in the Pacific islands. The university affiliation faculty development program links the University of Oregon with the University of the South Pacific and the College of Micronesia-FSM, Palau Community College, and the College of the Marshall Islands. The technical assistance program transfers technical skills to counterparts in public agencies and nonprofit organizations in American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the North Marianas, the Republic of Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands. A library development program works with public and school libraries throughout Micronesia.
Funding for the Micronesia and South Pacific Program is provided by a technical assistance grant from the Office of Insular Affairs of the U.S. Department of the Interior and by the University of Oregon. Specific programs are supported by the U.S. Information Agency and the U.S. Department of Education. Additionally, support for specific projects is provided by the states of Yap, Pohnpei and Kosrae in the Federated States of Micronesia, the Territory of American Samoa, Western Samoa, the Republic of Palau, the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas and the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
The Micronesia and South Pacific Program follows the letter and spirit of all equal-opportunity, civil-rights, and accessibility laws.
