WIU and DSC entered into the new partnership on Nov. 29. Under the agreement, DSC students seeking to take advantage of degree programs at WIU will benefit from the matching of coursework requirements at WIU, which will allow for a seamless transition, said WIU Director of Global Studies Randy Glean.

"We're very happy to sign this Memorandum of Understanding with Dominica State College. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with DSC and we look forward to welcoming their students and faculty to WIU," said WIU President Guiyou Huang.

According to Glean, the agreement provides the best opportunity for Dominica State College graduates and all Dominicans to obtain their bachelor's and master's degrees on a platform friendly to their needs and budget.

"Today we are pleased to be signing a Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation with Western Illinois University. We recognize WIU as an innovative and welcoming university for students from our institution, and we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship where students from WIU and DSC can learn and become future leaders," said Dominica State President Donald Peters.

Founded in 2002, Dominica State College is a consolidation of four other schools that were present on the island since the 1970s and 1980s: The Technical College, The Dominica Teachers Training College, The Sixth Form College and The Princess Margaret Hospital School of Nursing. In 2002, by an Act of Parliament, the CDCC (Academic and Technical Divisions) combined with the Dominica Teachers College and the Nursing School of the PMH to form the Dominica State College. In 2008, construction was approved for a new Dominica State College campus.

"We are pleased to work with DSC students, faculty and administration to provide an outstanding educational experience," said Interim Provost Billy Clow. "We will work to provide affordable and flexible options to ensure quality academic experiences for all of our students."
