The U.S. Pacific Territories and Freely Associated States membership is shared by the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Guam, the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), and the Republic of Palau.

WICHE’s Pacific Islands membership is open to all the U.S. Pacific Territories and Freely Associated States after they pass the necessary legislation. WICHE’s growing partnership in the region is thanks in part to substantial collaboration, as well as a generous grant from the U.S. Department of Interior, Office of Insular Affairs, which covers the fiscal year membership dues.
