AMBASSADORIAL ASSIGNMENT

MAJURO, Marshall Islands (January 18, 2002 – The Marshall Islands Journal)---College of the Marshall Islands President Alfred Capelle has resigned his post effective the end of January, according to CMI Board of Regents member Danny Muno.

Capelle is reportedly being tapped to take a new post as the RMI’s Ambassador to the United Nations, according to Muno, who made the announcement as part of an education update at the Majuro Chamber of Commerce’s monthly meeting last week at the Outrigger.

A Foreign Ministry official said that Capelle has not yet been officially nominated. The matter is expected to go to Cabinet this week for approval and then be put to the Nitijela for approval.

Former UN Ambassador Jackeo Relang returned to Majuro earlier this month after more than two years in the UN post.

Asked about his resignation, Capelle said that he had given notice to CMI and told the government that he was available after January 31 but he added, any nomination or appointment was a matter for the government to decide.

Capelle has been CMI’s President since 1996, presiding over a significant expansion -- both in facilities and enrollment at the Majuro and Kwajalein campuses.

A search for a replacement for Capelle is now under way.
