Curriculum Development for Hawaii's Colleges with Emphasis on Occupational Education.
Harris, Norman C.
In 1964 the state enacted a Community College Act which established a statewide system of several community college campuses under the administration of the University of Hawaii Board of Regents. The community colleges, varying in size and program emphasis, are intended to be comprehensive in nature with a nucleus of college transfer and occupational programs. This report of a study by a consultant is to be used to establish guidelines for the development of occupational education programs. Skilled manpower, suggested educational programs, occupational education curriculum, student services, administration and staffing, facilities, and finance are discussed. Some of the recommendations were: (1) Establish a system of "open-door" comprehensive community colleges to expand educational opportunity throughout the state, (2) Use high-level advisory committees at a statewide level, (3) Adopt an over-all planning scheme on a "systems analysis" approach, (4) Provide for equal emphasis on occupational education and college-parallel education and be sure each administrator is in accord with this philosophy, (5) Conduct community surveys in each county before phasing into community college operation, (6) Strive to obtain a reasonable balance between local persons and persons from the mainland in the staffs, and (7) Keep the tuition as low as possible.
