University of Hawaii System Outreach Efforts on the Neighbor Islands. Report No. 9.
This report examines the efforts of the University of Hawaii system to adopt and implement outreach programs to residents of areas without four-year and graduate-level educational institutions. Data on current programs were gathered through a questionnaire sent to officials at the University of Hawaii's three university and seven community-college campuses, while data about residents' needs were obtained through informational meetings on Kauai, Hawaii, Maui, Molokai, and Lanai. The study found that outreach policies varied considerably across the system, with some institutions having formal outreach programs, while others possessed no formal methods to ascertain their communities' needs. Specific course and program needs included: (1) social work, computer science, and travel industry management courses on Hawaii, along with master's degree programs in business, public administration, and biology; (2) social work courses on Maui, along with a bachelor's degree program in nursing and a master's degree program in social work; (3) bachelor's degree programs in education and nursing and a master's program in social work on Kauai; (4) bachelor's degree programs in nursing and education, along with master's degree programs in business administration and social work, on Molokai and Lani. Appendix A is the House Concurrent Resolution. Appendix B is the questionnaire distributed in response to the House Concurrent Resolution. (MDM)
