in a variety of disciplines. The Mico provides diverse opportunities for the achievement of higher education through flexible and comprehensive Bachelor's, Master's, Post Diploma and Certificate programmes.

The Mico University College was established as a nondenominational Christian institution that caters both to male and female students. Over the years the institution has undergone expansion and development, both physically and in its academic programmes.
In the 1970's the Government started training teachers for children with special needs, as well as funding for the training of teachers in these schools. Consequently, The Mico was selected by the Government as the college to offer this training. By the 1980s, The Mico was not only providing such teachers for schools in Jamaica, but for the entire English-speaking Caribbean.
In addition, through assistance from the Government of the Netherlands, the College established The Mico University College Diagnostic and Therapeutic Centre (the CARE Centre) to diagnose the learning challenges of multiple handicapped children and design individualised instructional techniques for these students. This Centre is the only one of its kind in the Commonwealth Caribbean and has gained international recognition.

The Company was founded by Joseph Michael and Opal Veronica Cornwall. At a very young age Joseph was interested in providing final care services for the deceased. It is with this in mind that he sought part-time employment with Madden’s Funeral Home. It was here where he learned both the Administrative and Mortuary Management Skills.
He has honed these skills through several courses in the United States of America and Puerto Rico, where he participated in Embalming and Operation of a Crematorium.
He was employed in the Government Service form 1972-1993. Until he opted for early retirement. While in the Government Service he excelled in all Educational Courses assigned to him. His favourites included Accounting, Systems and Procedures Management and Commercial Law.

The Company’s Mission Statement is “to provide Dignified Professional Services in a Modern State of the Art Facility at the most affordable cost.”
While the day to day operations at the House of Tranquillity is extremely arduous he still finds time to write letters to the Editor of both daily Gleaner and the Jamaica Observer on a wide range of topics affecting Jamaica and the World.

Michelle enrolled in the prestigious American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service Incorporated in New York, U.S.A. in 2002 where she graduated in 2003. On her way to becoming a Certified Funeral Director Michelle created waves while at McAllister excelling in academics.
